For the nature enthusiast, Hiawatha is the trailhead for the Cedar Valley Nature Trail, which is just under 52 miles long. The trail has wildflowers and pockets of native remnant prairie grasses that have been enlarged through the process of burning surrounding brush and non-native plants. The trail is also known to have abundant wildlife and birds to observe.
Residents of Hiawatha can also stop by the local Farmers Market, which runs mid-April through the end of October on Sundays, where 25 or more entrepreneurs from the area sell home grown and homemade products. These items include, but are not limited to, fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers, an assortment of baked products, preserved food products, arts, and crafts. The Cedar Rapids and Marion Farmers markets are also a short drive away and provide a nice alternate for days the Hiawatha Farmers Market isn’t open.
