Trail Survey

In collaboration with Iowa State University's CyBIZ Lab, the Dallas County Conservation Board is conducting a survey of Raccoon River Valley Trail users.  This information will be used to gain a better understanding of current and future trail usage and the needs and expectations of our trail visitors.  The link to this on-line survey can be found below.  The survey will take approximately 3-5 minutes to complete.  We hope you will take a few minutes to share your information and do your part in helping to make our already great trail system an even greater experience for all those who visit the RRVT.

Thank you for your participation.
