About this trail

The Jordan Creek Trail is located in West Des Moines and is named for the creek that runs along large sections of it. The trail traverses wooded and open areas that are home to a variety of plant and animal species.

A new trail extension circles the 230-acre lake in Raccoon River Park. The 632-acre park also boasts a nature lodge, softball complex, beach and picnic area. Future plans involve connecting the Jordan Creek Trail to the Clive, Windsor Heights and Des Moines trail system.
