The East Riverwalk runs along the Turkey River's scenic east shore from the city park to our historic downtown business district. It traverses the area where Elisha Boardman, one of Elkader's first settlers, put down roots in 1836 and then travels past the Clayton Country Courthouse and over the Keystone Bridge.
Continue your walk through historic downtown Elkader to visit inviting shops and view the beautiful stonework of buildings and storefronts. The South Riverwalk begins at the business district and travels along the west bank of the river to the southern edge of Elkader's residential area.
Include a walking tour of our historic sites for a view of eight National Historic Register sites.
