Parking is listed below, but the bike trail is connected to all of Coralville and Iowa City.

Stage #1 are the published coordinates.
Time to count thumbs. Most likely you will have two with you. For this quest, it might be best that you have a couple of extra with you, just for help.
Here you will find the cords to #2. The container is large enough for small trading items. This will be the only opportunity to do so.

Stage #2
The angry waters.
Here you will find an item needed to solve the final stage. If you have some with you, fine. If not, take this one with you but,
YOU WILL NEED TO RETURN AND REPLACE IT EXACTLY AS FOUND!
Here you will find the location to the final stage.

Stage #3
Think about the story.
Log book only! BYOP Please do not place any other items in this plain white pill bottle, and close it securely. Replace exactly as you found it.

Parking #1

Please be sensitive that this trail leads to an elementary school. At times there will be lots of mini-muggles using this path.

A word of caution. Deer hunting is permitted on the East side of Muddy Creek from Sept. through Jan.

As always, please respect nearby private property, and have fun!

Permission and permit on file with Coralville Parks and Rec.
