Groundbreaking Tuesday for Riverhawk Trail portion of Prairie Rock Trails in Mason City

MASON CITY — The groundbreaking for the Riverhawk Trail portion of the new Prairie Rock Trails in Mason City will be held Tuesday morning. The Riverhawk Trail located near the Mason City High School campus is one of the legs to link the broader regional Prairie Rock Trails system in north-central Iowa.

The groundbreaking signifies the celebration of the construction overview of all single-track mountain biking trails planned to be constructed in Mason City this year. These narrower single-track trails are used in all four seasons primarily for biking, hiking and snowshoeing.

This segment of trail will provide an opportunity for skills development and programming to the students at Mason City High School and John Adams Middle School. It will also allow for a loop near the river and serve as the closest trail to several neighborhoods on the east side of Mason City.

The groundbreaking will be held at 10:00 AM tomorrow morning just north of the Alternative High School located at 19 North Illinois Avenue.
