This is a pleasant afternoon hiking location with some moderate elevation changes. This trails features views of prehistoric Native American mounds from the Woodland culture. It is relatively low intensity and well maintained, with lots of wild roses along the trail as well as abundant wildlife (deer, bald eagles, woodpeckers). It iss just enough to get you blood pumping and see a bit of nature, while not getting too far away from Des Moines. We will definitely be back.
