My favorite local trail!

Was a nice 1 mile loop. Very easy can get pretty windy though since it's on the lake.

Enjoyed this trail,lots of trees and a nice big lake. Good elevation changes. Some fallen trees across trail but easily able to detour. I will be coming back again.

Nic loop rail for running and fitness with exercise stations along the route. Trail can be impassable during flooding.

Brisk 25 degrees weather. Ground is frozen and the lake has a cover of ice on it. Good hike, the foot bridges need some TLC.

The path is very poorly marked. But when you figure out where you’re going, it’s a great trail. Nice to be near the water, there were several look out areas with seating. The paths varied in width and incline, which was a nice mix. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful trail. Would have been 5 stars if it was marked better with signs, etc.

Great trail! Scenery was nice with winding paths, bridges, rock formations and the large body of water visible throughout most of the trail. Looking forward to hiking this trail again! Great trail for Hawkeyes to visit when they need a few hours of relaxation!

One of the best trails for trail running with a canine companion - trails are wide enough for both of us and we love the trees and lookout points over the water. So pretty!

Loved the rolling hills and dense forest. Nice unpaved trails for hiking and well marked. Loved the views of the lake from bluffs above. Close to Iowa City. Will definitely come back when in town next.

Nice pet friendly trail. Plenty of tree cover most of the way. Can be a busy trail.

Well maintained trail system. Easy to find and parking for about 15 cars. Some elevation change but not difficult at all. Beautiful views of the river.

Great little loop through the forest and along the lake. Can be busy during warm and holiday weekends. Great for a quick hike if you live in the area

After my first time, I will be back! Peaceful and under crowded. There is plenty of trail to walk a different route and discover new things each trip. Very satisfied.

First time I have been to this park. I will be coming back. Great place to hike, bring a lunch and eat at one of the benches. Very peaceful. Also found a great place on the trail to get down to the water and take a swim. Enjoy.

In my opinion, trails were a bit confusing but marked clearly. Very pretty, fair share of small hills. Clean, nice area.

Nice trail. Missed a turn and cut about a mile off of the distance. Most of the trail was very well marked.
