Three Rivers Trail  (Iowa)
 

  The Three Rivers Trail runs for 33 miles. Its west end has been completed to the outskirts of Rolfe, and the east end is currently 1.5 miles west of Eagle Grove. The trail gets its name from the fact that it  crosses three rivers; the west branch of the Des Moines River, the east branch of  the Des Moines River, and the Boone River. The western part of the trail parallels the Des Moines River for several miles. The trail passes through woodlands, grasslands, marshy areas, and open prairie. The trail has a 10 foot width of crushed limestone.  Parking lots, shelter houses, and restrooms have been added along the route. There are restrooms and showers at a park in Rolfe, which will be the future start of the western trailhead. Bradgate is just a small village with no amenities, so it's quite a stretch without water or food between Rolfe and Rutland. This is a great Iowa trail that few people know about.
