Raccoon River Valley Trail

Raccoon River Valley Trail

The Raccoon River Valley Trail is a 56-mile multi-use recreational trail that extends from Clive, in the Des Moines metropolitan area, to Jefferson. The trail is built on the former Milwaukee RR track now owned by the Dallas, Greene and Guthrie Couty Conservation Boards. The trail winds its way through the Middle and North Raccoon River corridors with area of prairie and canopies of timber that remind us of what Iowa was like in the 1870s. Common uses are hiking, biking, in-line skating, jogging, bird watching , or cross-country skiing and snowmobilling in the winter.
