Woodland Mounds Preserve Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Following a twisting path that winds through thick woods and up and down several hills, this hike is quite a workout. Located down a single-lane gravel road in farmland several miles south of Des Moines, this 325-acre site was inhabited 3,000 years ago by Native Americans who constructed large earthen mounds for use as either burial sites or for religious ceremonies."
--Michael Ream, Best Easy Day Hikes: Des Moines (Falcon Guides).
