GPS Coordinates: 41.3462409677081, -91.3208216428757

Management: County

Description: Near Cedar River but high ground - 176 acres

Habitat: top of the hills are planted with prairie plants and the rest is wooded with steep hills, has a few small ponds

Directions: In the southwest corner of Muscatine Co., and somewhat rough in places - Along Hwy. 92, just east over the river from Columbus Junction in Louisa Co., take G-40 north through Fredonia. After emerging from Fredonia, follow G-40 north and east a little under four miles to Q Ave., on the left. Go north on Q Ave., including two jogs, about 1.5 miles to the entrance on the right, after a line of pines. The first left from the trail off the parking lot leads to steep wooded bluffs and a creek. The trail gets thin in places going in, and at creek-level there are nettles and mosquitoes. The woods on the bluff across the creek has a good trail, but otherwise the park is unfinished in this section; best to stick to the woods itself. The other half of the park, south of the trail off the parking lot, is field and shrub.
