Catfish Creek Trail is a 1.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Dubuque, Iowa that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
People put their kayaks in here and it is a lovely trail by the creek but it can be a little buggy, of course.
Great birding trail. Savannas, Catfish Creek, upland and lowland forest. Unique ferns.
The straighter, creekside portion of the loop is a wide and flat path. The other side of the loop consists of some brisk climbing up and then down the ridge on stair paths. When we hiked the blackberries were in bloom and were plentiful.
