Wheel Pass Required

The Cannon Valley Trail is closed from Mile #3 at CF to Mile #8 at Welch until mid-May 2020 for bridge replacements. There are no designated detours.

A wheel pass is required for persons age 18 and over using a wheeled devise such as a bicycle, inline skates, scooter or skate board on the CVT from April 1 – Nov 1.  Hikers, joggers, walkers and people with wheel chairs are not required to purchase a pass.

Cannon Valley Trail Wheel Pass Fees are:

  • $25 for an annual pass

The Wheel Pass is non-transferable and sold to the individual, not sold to the recreational device.  (Example:  tandem bikes require two passes if two adults are operating.)
