After years of planning and fund raising led by the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, the high trestle trail grand opening was held in April 2011. This new 25 mile trail connects 5 Central Iowa communities, 4 counties and 670 miles of trails in Central Iowa. The highlight of this trail is the bridge crossing the Des Moines River on the northern reaches of the Saylorville Project. The trail bridge, a former Union Pacific railroad bridge, is one of the largest in the world at 1/2 mile in length and 13 stories tall.
