AMES: Peggy's Trail at Reactor Woods


Reactor Woods in Ames has a great 3 mile loop trail called Peggy's Trail.  With the beautiful 50 degree weather today we paired our snow boots with spring jackets.  The hike is kid-friendly, but be aware that there are some steep hills and with the icy trail conditions today we were sliding around quite a bit.

To find the trailhead, turn north on Scholl Road from Ontario Street.  Take the second right turn and go straight until it dead ends at a parking area.  A friendly woman in the parking lot advised that we should start at the trail to the right of the sign, so we did the trail counter-clockwise but I noticed everyone else on the trail was going the opposite direction.  There are no restrooms near the trail.
