The Clear Creek Trail runs south of Highway 6 along Clear Creek for 4.3 miles. The trail has been extended from east of Deer Creek Road to Creekside Ballpark; this extension opened in 2019.
Trail work north of I-80 involves crossing under multiple I-80 and I-380 bridges. Once those trail connections are complete, the Clear Creek Trail will connect with Tiffin's Clear Creek Trail west of I-380.
The trail segments that go under the I-80 and I-380 bridges are not expected to open until 2024 and there are no temporary connections. These segments will be constructed as part of the I-80/380 Systems Interchange project, and will be constructed after the new I-80 and I-380 bridges over Clear Creek are complete.
After all work is complete, the 1.9 mile section of trail will feature:
10' wide paved trail
Two bridge crossings over Clear Creek
Multiple crossings under interstate bridges
Connection to Tiffin's Clear Creek Trail
