Woodpecker Trail (and Squire Point) Professional Review and Guide
"Part of an extensive hiking system around Coralville Lake, this delightful walk takes you down woodland trails to scenic overlooks over the water.
Coralville Lake offers 20 miles of some of the best trails in the region with upland and lowland forests, wetlands, rocky outcrops, and loads of wildflowers. The 5-mile Squire Point and Woodpecker Trail system is some of the most interesting.
The trail begins quickly with a steep drop through dappled woodlands filled with hardwood trees, shy flowers, and birds flitting from branch to branch. Although you won’t be lonely on this popular trail, most of the time it is still an exceptionally peaceful setting. Shagbark hickory, silver maple, and white and red oaks mix with eastern red cedars."
