A fun little trail that maneuvers itself up some of the Iowa limestone cliff sides.

Description

From the parking lot, head south towards the trailhead. This trail starts off by climbing up one of the limestone cliff sides next to the creek. It then wanders through the trees for awhile before it descends back down. This is a gorgeous trail, especially during the fall because of the beautiful colors that surround the area.

A bit muddy with snow melt, but certainly passable.
