Derecho storm damage is extensive. We are still working to clear parks and trails -- this will be ongoing for awhile.
As of August 20, the following areas are still closed:
- Dakins Lake
-Soper’s Mill to Bear Creek on Skunk River Greenbelt
- Heart of Iowa Nature Trail
- Skunk River Water Trail
Please still use caution in reopened parks -- stay aware of your surroundings and don’t go under or near damaged trees. Some trails in reopened parks have been blocked off; please mind caution tape and barricades. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. We will keep updating this post as we clear more areas.
