New Development on Trail at Crystal Cove

This is a picture of the new wildlife observation facility being constructed at Crystal Cove in South Sioux City right next to the trail. Gene Maffit, Parks and Rec Director of South Sioux City, told Siouxland Trails Foundation "South Sioux City is constructing an outdoor wildlife observation facility at Crystal Cove. The new facility will have cameras both above and below the water for viewing fish and birds. We are going to link them to South Sioux City's website and have monitors in the new facility for viewing also." Congratulations to South Sioux City for enhancing experiences along our trails and for continuing to demonstrate its commitment to provide high quality recreational facilities for the citizens of our area.

How to Report Potholes

Most bicycle riders have to ride at least a portion of their route on city streets. Potholes that are an inconvenience for an automobile can be bone-jarring or accident causing for a bicyclist. The City of Sioux City makes it very easy to report a pothole. Go to the City's website and click on the Contact Us link. A drop down menu will appear and one of the options is 'Report a Pothole' - You can list your name and phone number and the address/description of where the pothole is. Our experience is that the City does a fairly good job of following up on these requests, and we have had them call the number we gave with the report to follow up.
