The section of the Raccoon River between Dawson and Perry will always be most memorable to me. My father and I would often times canoe it. The trail sounds good, my father tried promoting that idea 30 years ago to no avail. Nearly $2ooK per miles sounds very expensive though. Instead of aphsalt, why not just mulch the trail, the pavement will get frost heaves and pot hole each spring anyways.
