Excellent trail! Very well marked, lots of scenic opportunities including views of the lake, bridges and waterfalls (small but still. ..) as well as wildlife. During my hike there were several different birds, squirrels, deer and even bald eagles! Don't miss this trail if you live in the area!
Great place to get out and do some activities. This trail has built in activities areas for bonus workouts. there are a couple of foot bridges in place to allow for more access without having to muck around in the mud. Awesome place when the trees are turning. You have a few options for the mental breaks by sitting on trail benches overlooking Coralville Reservoir. Access this from either the Linder Point campground near the Dam or just south of North Liberty at the Squire Point trail head off Dubuque Street.
It was a nice hike. Pretty scenery along the lake. Couple of areas had potential waterfalls with the correct amount of rain or spring melt. Very wide paths on most of the trails. Lots of wildlife if you take the time to look. Saw deer, an perched owl and a paper hornet nest in action.
I love the Coralville reservoir and if you are like me you will also! There is a whole days worth of activities here if you like the outdoors! I used to come here as a kid all the time, recently came back and the fossil gorge is not as good as it used to be, a lot of the fossils were washed away in the floods a few years back but still plenty of history and interesting things to see! When my girlfriend and I were there it wasn't too busy, a few families with children and a few people fishing along the trails but all together a peaceful day. While we were there, there was a bunch of kids at the start of the fossil gorge laughing/screaming having a good time and kept looking at the ground so we went up to see what was going on and there was literally hundreds of baby frogs jumping all of the place, very fun to interact with nature although my girlfriend didn't find it quite as interesting as I did during that part HAHA.
