Boone River Recreational Trail Description

There are few better ways to experience Boone River without actually getting your feet wet than the Boone River Recreational Trail. The trail weaves along the scenic river, taking you from one end of Webster City to the other. The start point of the concrete multi-use path is Nokomis Park. As you travel southward, scenery will switch from riparian forest to flat farmland, and natural prairies. The trail also connects to other recreational areas, including parks, golf courses and fishing jetties. Walkers, joggers, cyclists and other non-motorized uses are welcome to share the 10-ft wide path. Crossings are almost all below grade. Your journey will end in Briggs Woods Park.  

 

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking available at the northern endpoint, Nokomis Park & Middleton Sports Complex (700 East Street).  The park includes sports fields and canoe access to the river. If you choose to begin from the south end, you can park at Briggs Woods Park (2450-2498 Briggs Woods Rd.). Facilities here include an RV Park and a golf course.
