“Walk it daily”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

Enough twists in the path that running 3+ miles isn't monotonous. Also there are playgrounds right on the trail is several parts so it's fun to do family bike rides. A big negative can be the speed racers getting ready for RAGBRI - slow down or get on the road!

“What a wonderful trail”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

I enjoyed a mellow ride along a pretty stream on a retal bike from my hotel. Its great to be able to cruise a little and get a nice work out in after a day at work in a city away from home. This paved bike/running trail was well maintained and had numerous bridges and water stops. the other cyclists were respectful and nice as they passed. I am very pleasantly surprised by this trail and it has changed my whole outlook on Des Moines, you locals should be proud.

“Beautiful walk or bike ride”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

This Greenbelt is a great extension of the Clive neighborhood west of 86th Street, and yet in the summer, you can't see any of the nearby homes. Mostly shaded & full of nature and it is runs alongside Walnut Creek, with picturesque bridges spaced throughout.

Wonderful bike trail-we started on 100th street and rode to Greys lake and the state capital. Very good signs and directions on the way.
