      Sycamore Trails are fast, flowing singletrack that weaves through old growth forest along the west side of the Des Moines River. The trails are generally easy riding and many adults and children frequent the trails. It is open to walkers, joggers, runners and dogs on leashes - so be considerate of these other trail users.
