Description

Access the Raccoon Trail by running the Dianne Nora Nature Trail. The trail briefly travels through a floodplain forest before entering a grassland area. Raccoon Creek is to the right of the trail. After 0.67 miles, the trail intersects with the River Trail. Turn right and follow the River Trail for about 0.1 miles, then turn right at the next intersection to continue on the Raccoon Trail. Cross the trestle bridge over Raccoon Creek and turn left, following the perimeter of a grassland area for about 1.5 miles before looping back to the trestle bridge. Cross the trestle bridge and follow the trail back out the way you came in.
