The Tom Harkin Trailhead (formerly the Camp Cardinal Trailhead) is located on the north side of Clear Creek, just east of Camp Cardinal Boulevard.

The trailhead features restrooms, shelter, an information kiosk, parking, and a ramp for access to Clear Creek by small water craft.

It is adjacent to the 4.3 mile Clear Creek Trail.  The City continues to seek funding for the remaining 1.2 miles of trail to connect to the Tiffin border.

In October 2014, the former Camp Cardinal Trailhead was renamed the Tom Harkin Trailhead in recognition of Senator Harkin’s work promoting health and wellness, and for his leadership in obtaining federal funds for the trailhead and for a portion Coralville’s Clear Creek Trail.
