Brown’s Woods Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This hike is a “double loop,” or two trails linked together, and is located inside the largest urban forest preserve in Iowa: Brown’s Woods, 484 wooded acres that hug the Raccoon River just inside the Des Moines suburb of West Des Moines. Brown’s Woods is also part of the Makoke (MAHkoh- kay) birding trail, which encompasses several sites in central Iowa. The hike is notable for the cacophonous sound of woodpeckers at work, including the yellow-bellied sapsucker and yellow-brown flicker."
