Things to Do
The Boone Forks Region boasts the internationally recognized High Trestle Trail to the south, the breathtaking Des Moines River Valley as its backbone, star woodlands throughout and a series of vibrant and revitalizing communities. All of this is embedded in an agricultural context, rich in history and heritage. This region is primed for a collaborative effort to connect parks to people and places—from nationally recognized historic byways and history-celebrating world-class paved trails to a notable water trails network, nearly 50 county park assets, two state preserves, three state parks and facilities within each of the region’s vital communities. When we add the heritage, cultural and educational assets to the region, the potential is unbounded. Come explore with us!
