LET'S CONNECT!

A Fundraising Campaign to Connect Two Trails

donate now 

Join the "LET'S CONNECT” fundraising campaign to support a 9-mile connector trail between Perry and Woodward! 

This project will link two of the premier recreational trails in Iowa – the Raccoon River Valley Trail (RRVT) and the High Trestle Trail (HTT).  This new connection of two major trails will create an 86 mile loop and an 118 mile loop, allowing trail users more options than ever before! 

Approximately $5 million will be needed to build what is projected to be a crucial connection in the central Iowa trail network, which now includes more than 600 miles of paved trails and connects more than twenty-four towns around the Des Moines metro area and beyond.  Join the campaign and pledge to donate!
