Clive Greenbelt Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This trail forms a bridge between the Walnut Creek Trail and the eastern edge of the Raccoon River Valley Trail as it heads into the countryside west of Des Moines. Beginning just off a busy road that straddles the suburbs of Clive, Windsor Heights, and West Des Moines, the hike meanders along a bucolic stretch of Walnut Creek, making for an easy escape from the surrounding bustle (although the path can become crowded with cyclists—stay alert!). The hike features a reconstructed prairie alive with flora—it’s probably the best example of prairie you’ll see on any hike in this guide."
--Michael Ream, Best Easy Day Hikes: Des Moines (Falcon Guides).
