Take a hike. Hiking the High Trestle Trail
The unique 130-foot-tall bridge you see here is just a small part of a longer, 25-mile trail that connects five small towns in central Iowa in the Midwestern United States. The High Trestle Trail is a rail trail – a decommissioned railway track that’s been turned into a multi-use path, drawing hikers, cyclists and even cross-country skiers. Each night, the spiralling steel frames of the bridge light up, reflecting in the Des Moines River below.
