Raccoon River Valley Trail North Loop “Grand Opening” on June 1 in Perry



Mark your cycling calendars  for the “Grand Opening” of the Raccoon River Valley Trail North Loop scheduled for June 1, 2013 at Noon. This ceremony will take place in Perry, Iowa (our Monday night RAGBRAI overnight host  community) at the Trailhead of the Raccoon River Valley Trail (RRVT). “Kevin Cooney” from KCCI News TV 8 will be the Keynote Speaker.  June 1 is also National Trails Day and the grand opening was scheduled specifically to coincide with that day. Other events and activities you may be interested in begin at 9:00 a.m.

The RRVT north loop is a 33 mile addition to the nationally acclaimed Raccoon River Valley Trail which was established in 1989. The addition creates a 72 mile loop trail and  brings the total miles of the RRVT to 89. This 72 mile loop is considered the Longest  Paved Loop Trail in the Nation. It connects 4 counties and 14 communities as well as tying into the Des Moines-metro trail network.
