this is a great trail for a run, walk or ride to enjoy the great surrounding. Spent a few hours here last weekend with the family
On our recent visit to Des Moines this proved to be one of our favourite things to do. As previous comments mention it is very pretty and well maintained, as is all Des Moines. Would love to visit again to see the lower pathway which was not visible during our stay.
