“A great stretch of singletrack just above the floodline of the Coralville Reservoir.”

This trail may be the best stretch of trail in the entire MacBride complex. It's a little ribbon of singletrack following the contours of the Coralville Reservoir for about .75 miles just above the 150 year flood level. We know this because just downslope of the trail, the 150 year flood we got in 2008 washed everything else away.
The trail runs from the spillway out to the Triangle Area Trail
and there are several wooden planks crossing the gullies that drain this side of the park. There are birds and fauna abundant in the area, but be careful taking your eyes off the trail here.

The usual Iowa fare.
