Little Walnut Creek Trail Description

Running along a pleasant wooded corridor that follows the path of the Little Walnut Creek on the western outskirts of Urbandale, the Little Walnut Creek Trail is an excellent means of recreation for residents of the nearby subdivisions, and also serves as a worthy offshoot of the nearby Raccoon River Valley Trail. On the trail's eastern end, trail users can access the Bob Layton Trail via Aurora Avenue, part of a network of trails that follows Walnut Creek.

Starting in the east, the trail departs from a small cul-de-sac and winds it way through a cluster of trees, crossing over its namesake creek and heading into a park and playground area belonging to Urbandale's Walnut Creek Regional Park. Continuing west, the trail uses the sidewalk at 156th Street to cross over the creek once again, then follows the creek behind rows and rows of recently built homes. Along the way, various paths shoot off to provide easy access to and from these neighborhoods, ensuring that residents have access to the city's trail network even at the very edges of town in this rapidly-developing area. The trail currently ends at an underpass beneath Northeast Alice's Road, now technically within the city limits of Clive, IA - the city is working on plans to extend the trail further west another mile in the future.
