  • This location is shown only to members

Carpooling/Caravaning: For those in the CR/Marion area, please meet at the Walmart in Marion on Highways 151/13(park across the street from McDonalds). The drive will be 1 hour and 30 minutes one way from this location. Please meet here between 7:15 am and 7:25 am so we can promptly leave at 7:30 am. This will give us time to use the restroom, gas up at the Casey's across the street, etc. For those in the Iowa City area, please meet at the IHOP in Coralville. The drive will be approximately 1 hour from this location. Please be at the IHOP at 7:45 am and 7:55 am so we can promptly leave by 8:00 am. If you wish to drive on your own, that's fine. If the Cedar Rapids group would like to join with the Iowa City group to caravan to the park, please communicate that with the group. We will meet at the park office to get started.

What to Bring: Bottled water, a backpack, comfortable shoes/socks, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray are good items to bring. If anyone wants to bring snacks for the group, that would be awesome too. Oh yeah, and bring cameras. 

Bringing Pets: If you have a pet that you would like to bring, DNR rules and regulations state that they must be kept on a leash with a maximum length of six feet, or be kept confined.

    There is a 40% chance of rain, so plan accordingly. Be sure to bring gnat/bug spray as well.

      I have found the spray called Bug Soother works very well for keeping gnats away.

    Who is carpooling from CR/Marion?

      Andrew I'm not 100% sure if I am going or not. I had my appendix out on 6/05 and things arent healing up the way they should. One of my incisions is infected. So if I do end up going I will be carpooling from Marion Walmart.

    I'm not going to be able to go this hike because I'll be conquering Yellow River State Forest with family. Fearless Dale will be hosting the hike.
