High Trestle Trail & Depot at Colton Park

The Ankeny to Woodward Trail, now named the High Trestle Trail, spans 25 miles, including the ½ mile, 13-story tall Des Moines River Valley Trail bridge with its dramatic vistas, series of overlooks, and an art immersion experience – reflective of the area’s coal mining history.

At the Woodward End of the Trail visitors will find a great rest area at Colton Park.  The old Train Depot has been renovated to include a gathering area as well as modern restrooms.
