June 01, 2018 The Rides of Summer June 01, 2018/ Melanie Rosenow Summer vacation starts today with a morning bike ride on the Raccoon River Valley Trail. Work begins on a new housing development north of the trail outside of Waukee. I BELIEVE!!! Improvements to Dallas Center’s trailhead continue with an art installation. The redbud trees will always be my favorite amenity. It was still blinking when I found it!
