Wild Cat Den State park, Muscatine

Directions: From Muscatine, take Hwy 22 east approx. 8 miles.  Look for brown State Park signs, turn left, park will be 1 mile ahead.  Park at the Old Mill parking lot.  Trail head is directly across the road.

Trail Information: The trail is heavily wooded and shaded.  There are numerous steep, but short hills.  Trail makes a large loop and can be run in either direction.  I'm a 90 minute half marathoner and the trail takes about 1 hour when I run two loops.  For part of trail, you run along Pine Creek's babbling waters and beneath towering sandstone cliff walls.  Very scenic!

Miscellaneous Information: May see a large variety of wildlife including fox & deer (but no wildcats!)
