Central Iowa Trail Association
Des Moines

Central Iowa Trail Association (CITA) is a volunteer run, membership-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 1998. CITA creates shared-use, dirt singletrack for mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners. They are an International Mountain Bicycling Association chapter, maintaining and building singletrack trails, teaching proper trail use to trail users, and working in collaboration with land managers to protect the landscapes where we love to play.

All of the work is possible because of CITA's passionate volunteers, members, and longstanding community support. It is an inclusive members-driven club that ensures everyone has the opportunity to discover our local trails, meet new people, improve their skills, and volunteer to pay it all forward so that we, and generations to come, may benefit.
