South Skunk River is a tributary of the Mississippi River. In Ames, the Skunk River Trail brings residents closer to river and to nature. The shared use path sits on the shady west bank of South Skunk River and weaves its way through a series of parks including Inis Grove Park, Homewood Municipal Golf Course, Carr Park, North River Valley Park and South River Valley Park.
The trail is multiuse and open to pedestrians as well as cyclists.
There's parking at the parks along the route.
