Just a fun trail. Several branches off the main. Surprising park in the middle of the city. One side is the forest. The other track is by the Rock River.

good short hike if you have a couple hours to spare and want to get on a trail. easy terrain for people of all ages and pets. trails were narrow at some points but well maintained. lots of people the day i went. will repeat when im looking for a short walk and dont want to drive far.

Easy, fun hike. Moderate elevation changes and lots of stairs. Nice river views at several spots along the way. However, nothing really that amazing and nearby construction noise kind of ruined the ambience.

Wooded trail with areas for trail running/jogging. Forgot bug spray but wasn't too bad even for July. Water levels usually high due to recent rain. Would like to come back for kayaking.

Great place within the Quad Cities to get out of the city.

Muddy after the morning rain

The power of erosion has damaged the trail on the Rock River side, but it remains passable without too much difficulty. We hiked both sides at dawn on a day that broke cloudy. A light breakfast by the river was a great way to start the day.

Not too bad. A little slippery in some spots after rain.

This was fun! I accidentally left a review that said something about a gazebo, that was meant for maquocada caves! But this was fine to!

The was such a good hike! We took our dog and she loved it! When we went to the caves, they were all very nice. And if you decide to go, look for a gazebo and walk left for a while. You'll come across a little bitty stream so you cross it, and then there will be orange flags leading you up a hill. Once up the hill (it was a bit challenging) there is a perfect place to spitball and relax! From there just head left again and you'll be At the parking lot!
