High Trestle Trail Art Bridge Woodward to Madrid Iowa

The High Trestle Trail Art Bridge

This trail and bridge over the Des Moines River between Woodward and Madrid, Iowa, is no boring hike — day or night!

Be sure to bring a flashlight if you walk it at night; the bicyclists sharing the paved walkway will appreciate it! Built on a former railroad line, the High Trestle Trail and bridge stay true to this central Iowa region’s heritage of rail and mining.

Yes, there is mining in Iowa!

The square steel frames over the bridge are arranged just so to give the illusion of a mine shaft. Lit up in blue lights at night, walking under the framework makes you feel a part of the art.  It’s an entirely different kind of blue-light-special.

This trail is definitely worth the trip!

Be sure you catch the end of the video — is that a train we hear, coming down the tracks?
