Public place to wheel


I got my Rubicon 6/30 and the most off road it has seen is a dirty gravel parking lot and my yard. I want to do some VERY mild wheeling. I am about ready to find some class C road and just drive down them

So.....can anyone tell me where I can find some 'rough' dirt roads or even better a little trail that I could drive on just to get some of the Mall Crawler off my new ride?

I live in west des moines, so if there is any thing close, that would be ideal. If I cant find anything, I might just have to tear up my yard a bit.

The Green Belt trail runs from Nora Springs to Rock Falls in North Iowa. The trail is easy with a couple hill climbs and a water crossing. The trail is well maintained and follows the Shellrock river. Not challenging but a good place to get started. After a hard rain it gets very muddy and is a bit more difficult.
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
