Description

Lightly armed cavalry soldiers known as Dragoons were among the first people to scout Iowa after the Black Hawk Purchase of 1832 put the area under U.S. control. In the summer of 1835, the Dragoons blazed a trail along the Des Moines river and established outposts from present-day Des Moines to Fort Dodge. Today, you can follow in the footsteps of the Dragoons by exploring a 200 mile "greenbelt" along the Des Moines, Boone and Raccoon rivers. The Dragoon trail takes you past Lake Red Rock, Ledges State Park, the Kate Shelley High Bridge and Dolliver Memorial Park.
