Hello,
I am an outdoors-lover, and may be moving to the Cedar Falls-Waterloo area. Besides cycling, what options are available in northeastern Iowa? I am primarily interested in hiking, camping, backpacking, etc. Are there any good backpacking trips, hikes to waterfalls, etc. in the region? Any responses would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi, I live far south of the Cedar Falls area, but I found some links that may help you...

localhikes.com and trails.com

Maquoketa Cave State Park is really the only place I've been hiking in IA, and it's quite a ways east of Cedar Falls, on the Mississippi. But if you're interested in caves, I would look it up.

I lived in WCF so can tell you what I know.

Waterloo-Cedar Falls is not in the part of Northeast Iowa that you hear about a lot here. It is surrounded by relatively flat cropland for miles.

However, there are miles and miles of trails in the Cedar Valley, which is a definite plus to the area.

If you want to get to the hiking and bluffs and whatnot you will have to drive a good hour or hour and 1/2 to the east towards Wisconsin.
