Trail Map


Work began Monday, Oct. 24, on a stretch of the Raccoon River Valley Trail southeast of Panora in Guthrie County, requiring closure of the trail between the roads Viceroy Trail and 230th Street.  Approximately 450 feet of the trail will be totally re-constructed by Howrey Construction. The trail closure could last two to three weeks depending on weather, so Raccoon River Valley Trail users should plan accordingly. For more information, please contact Guthrie County Conservation at (641) 755-3061.
