Coralville Reservoir - Linder and Squire Points Professional Review and Guide

"One of the many developed trail systems around the Coralville Reservoir–Lake MacBride complex, the connecting loops of Linder and Squire Points Trails have long served as a haven for dog walkers and trail runners.

A few loops on the trails here combined with a nice bike ride around the reservoir make for a great day. Add in a jump off the cliffs into the reservoir during the hot summer, and you’ve got a perfect day."

This is a nice flat trail that I find is more for walking than hiking. There’s some nice views of the reservoir but it does get pretty busy on the weekend. I recommend bike riding here as well. I like this hike for taking the dog on a jog but it may be a bit boring if you’re looking for a more intensive hike with more natural surroundings.

Nice set of trails for a brisk walk, well marked. But despite all of the visual beauty, on busy weekends the noise of all the boats on the reservoir definitely detracts from overall enjoyment. Pick a weekday if tranquility is of any importance

Yes, this is a hiking trail, so it has that going for it. You need to realize that you're hiking along a reservoir which is man made, so the amount of natural beauty in this place is limited. Still, this is one of the better hiking trails in the area and it is definitely worth checking out.

Squire Point offers a scenic loop with varying terrain. Much of the loop is singletrack that ranges from sand to bare dirt and rock. There are many benches along the way with nice views of Coralville Lake. This is a nice trail for a quick afternoon hike.
