Open on 7/18/2020 Great little spot in Iowa, mostly because of the lake and spillway. Without those, it's a pretty boring, very typical short hike. With those, it's absolutely worth it. The spillway and falls are gorgeous and totally worth going to hangout on a hot summer day. Normal area downfalls like tons of bugs and poison ivy.

This was a great New Year’s Day hike with my partner and our two dogs. The trail was very muddy but the view was great. The dogs loved the waterfall

The Waterfall was wonderful...but, not well marked.

We got to the lake, and the next path looked overgrown, so we turned back and discovered the raptor project... that was pretty cool.

Very nice hike, with tree coverage the whole way. There were some steep parts, but for short distances. The spillway has some shallow pools in it, and there were people and kids wading in the water. Beware of the narrow paths and wear long pants, there was poison ivy everywhere.

Excellent short hike with an amazing spillway/waterfall towards the end. It was one of our favorite stops on out Iowa waterfall tour.
