The Raccoon River Valley Trail is a 89-mile-long paved trail along the branches of the beautiful Raccoon River through Greene, Guthrie and Dallas Counties in west central Iowa. It includes the communities of Jefferson, Cooper, Herndon, Yale, Panora, Linden, Redfield, Adel and Waukee. And, going east, the RRVT connects with the extensive trail system in Iowa’s capital city of Des Moines.

A 33-mile-long “North Loop,” was added in the Summer of  2013 that included the communities of Dallas Center, Minburn, Perry, Dawson and Jamaica. 

Construction is now underway for the High Trestle Trail extension. This extension commonly referred to as "The Connector" will connect the city of Perry on the Raccoon River Valley Trail to Woodward on the High Trestle Trail and will be completed in 2024.

Portions of the  Raccoon River Valley Trail are included in the Great American Rail-Trail, American Discovery Trail and National Recreational Trail.

All that is why we believe the RRVT is “becoming one of America’s best recreational trails."
