5 Biking Trails in Iowa Near the Des Moines River Valley
Fall is an excellent time to hit the trails on your bike, enjoy the cooler temperatures, and catch some epic glimpses and views of the fall leaves. Central Iowa is full of scenic trails that pop with color as the leaves begin to change into vibrant reds, oranges, yellows, and browns, and the Des Moines River Valley is no exception. This region of Iowa, in Des Moines and the surrounding areas, has many opportunities for cyclists of all ages and skill levels to hop on their bikes and hit the trails, many of which are paved and accessible for all. From the famous High Trestle Trail that topples over the Des Moines River to the Neal Smith Trail that takes bikers through wildlife and forested areas, here are a few bike trails to check out this fall as the season changes!
