Redfield, a farming town 30 miles west of Des Moines, is home to this stretch of the 56-mile Raccoon River Valley Trail, which runs west-northwest from the outskirts of Des Moines into wide open farm country. The hike actually doesn’t go by the river, but it has some nice views, and if you keep going about 9 miles, you come to the historic courthouse town of Adel.
