Raccoon River Valley Trail, Redfield, Iowa, USA

Fabulous Raccoon River Valley Trail running 56 miles from Waukee, Iowa, to Jefferson, Iowa. In 2013, an additional 33.1-mile north loop was completed making the RRVT nearly 90 miles of paved trails.

The 39-mile portion of the trail from Waukee to Herndon is part of the American Discovery Trail, which runs between Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware and Point Reyes near the Bay Area of California. In Iowa, the American Discovery Trail will be concurrent with U.S. Bicycle Route 50.

The recreational trail runs through the counties of Polk, Dallas, Guthrie, and Greene in Iowa. It is a paved trail, mainly asphalt, though three sections are concrete. One concrete section extends from Jefferson south for four miles. Another concrete section is a twelve-mile section connecting Linden, Panora, and Yale. Constructed during 2010-2013, the 33.1-mile North Loop, which runs between Dawson and Waukee through Perry, Minburn, and Dallas Center, is the third concrete section.
