Due to nearby lakes and rivers, this trail system tends to flood late spring each year. If the trail system says closed, do not enter and return after the trail has had adequate time to dry. The CITA (Central Iowa Trail Association) website will have updates about all area closures.

Runner Notes

Watch your footing and be alert for mountain bikers.

Description

This is the hardest 3/4 of a mile within this trail system, making for a tough finish to any visit to the area. The footing is technical due to the slope and elevation changes. This trail starts from pavement and exits to pavement and a parking lot with a great view of the largest lake in the park (name unknown).

Flora & Fauna

There are wildflowers, eagles, owls, deer, chipmunks, raccoons, squirrels, foxes, and an occasional coyote or wild cats. Beware of the poison ivy.
