Heart of Iowa Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Beginning in the town of Slater, this hike takes you into flat farmland north of Des Moines. The occasional tree and sprinkling of wildflowers provide welcome relief and diversion, respectively, if you are hiking this trail on a hot summer day.

A short drive to the west of the Slater trailhead is the High Trestle Trail, and plans are underway to connect this planned 32-mile trail to other trails as well, forming a 100-mile loop of trails in central Iowa."
