Des Moines River Trail

Des Moines River Trail Donation Pledge Form

A group of Central Iowa trail advocates has undertaken an effort to assure development of trail connections in the southeastern quadrant of Des Moines and Polk County. Trails that have already obtained funding and will be constructed in the next few years include the Indianola Road Trail, Ewing Park/Easter Lake Park Loop Trail, and the Carlisle Nature Trail Loop which begins a northwesterly connection from Carlisle toward Des Moines. The trail that will have the greatest impact on connectivity of the Central Iowa Trails is the Des Moines River Trail, the critical first segment in a future regional trail that will connect to Easter Lake Park and the City of Carlisle and the Summerset Trail. There is a funding shortfall for this major project, and we need your help!
