Great American Rail Trail: Project Watch in 2020: Iowa’s River’s Edge Trail

Has anyone ridden in this area? What do you think the completed trail will be like?

“In central Iowa, a 34-mile rail-trail nestled in the scenic Iowa River greenbelt is taking shape that will close a key gap in the Great American’s trek across the Midwestern state. Northeast of Des Moines, the River’s Edge Trail, formerly known as the Iowa River Trail, will connect seven communities and two counties on its passage between Steamboat Rock and Marshalltown. Its completion is being spearheaded by the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, and currently, two short sections—located at either end of the trail and totaling about 3 miles—have opened. Another 4.4 miles of the trail, heading south from Steamboat Rock to neighboring Eldora, is under development and anticipated to open in the fall or winter of 2020.”
