High Trestle Trail

by Cassie, April 28th, 2011 | No Comments

This weekend is the grand opening of the new High Trestle Trail from Ankeny to Woodward, and we took a sneak peak by riding along the trail last weekend. The trail was an old railway track that was decommissioned. The trail has been in the works for 8 years, and the highlight of the trail is its namesake, the High Trestle Bridge. The bridge is 1/2 mile long and 13 stories high, and it has an amazing view of the Des Moines River!

Here is a cool video by the City of Ankeny of riding along the High Trestle Trail
(the best part is riding across the bridge at 1:28):
