This Gorgeous Hike Through A Picturesque Iowa Forest Will Absolutely Enchant You

Even though Iowa is an agricultural state, our rural days are (mostly) behind us. More Iowans live in urban cities than in small, rural towns throughout the state, and that means we’re really getting our fill of pollution, smog, and busy, bustling streets. When you’re looking for a break from the noises and sights of the city, head to one West Des Moines trail that’s sure to capture your heart.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

You’ll find Browns Woods in West Des Moines, and can get a trail map and more information from AllTrails.

Address: Browns Woods Drive, West Des Moines, IA, 50265
