Great Western Trail – Des Moines, Iowa

Great Western Trail runs along an old railroad line, connecting several small towns in a paved stretch. Primarily used by bikers, it passes over bridges with intermittent shade and scenery. We visited as a part of the Polk County Geocaching Challenge, exploring off of the Des Moines trail head.
