The Cedar River is the second largest river within the State of Iowa, and one of the most picturesque. It, together with its northern tributaries, rises in southern Minnesota. Its general course is southeast to Moscow, about fifteen miles from the Mississippi River; at this point it turns almost at right angles, and flowing south west about thirty miles it empties into the Iowa river.
