A former rail line used by several different railroads, this popular hiking and cycling trail cuts across the southeast corner of Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt and runs for nearly 20 miles from just outside the town of Bondurant to Baxter, passing through other towns along the way. This hike begins surrounded by cornfields, but quickly moves into the woods that run along the bottomlands near the Skunk River. Santiago Creek threads its way along the trail as well.
