The trail system currently offers 4.2 miles of walking/biking trails throughout the city. Starting at the Oelwein Family Aquatic Center, the trail winds south through Reidy Park and past Platt Park then crosses 10th Street SE. The trail then traverses around to the exterior of the Oelwein Industrial Park before ending at the Veteran's Memorial Sports Complex. Starting in the southeast part of Redgate Park this trail winds though the wooded area of the southwest quadrant of Oelwein, before it skirts the City of Oelwein utility shops. The trail crosses 6th Ave SW and skirts a creek before ending at Levin Park.
