Trestle to Trestle Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"With lots of neat little pools swarming with flora and fauna alongside the trail as it passes through boggy lowlands along the Des Moines River, this hike is a great opportunity to explore the natural world near the heart of the city.

Moving southeast, this hike on a rails-to-trails conversion passes through largely undisturbed areas before abruptly coming to a busy stretch of road on the north side of Des Moines. The paved path also winds north toward Johnston, connecting to that suburb’s trail system."
