High Trestle Trail Bridge at Sunset

Madrid, Iowa, USA

Easy - New

Ride the final 5-6 miles of the western end of the High Trestle Trail, a Rail-to-Trail in Central Iowa. The ride begins in Madrid and travels westwards to Woodward. This section contains the High Trestle Trail Bridge, a nearly half-mile long, 130 ft tall bridge that crosses the Des Moines River Valley. It is one of the longest trail bridges in the world, and in 2015 the BBC named it as one of the top eight pedestrian bridges to walk in the entire world. Be on the lookout for a couple of rabbits and for deer on both sides of the bridge. This ride is about as easy as it can get – straight, flat, and ridden at an easy pace to cross the bridge at sunset.
