Timberline Park Trail Description

The Timberline Park Trail forms a crucial link in the Urbandale area's trail network, while also offering a scenic experience for local residents in need of a neighborhood stroll. The northern end of the trail forms a connection with the Bob Layton Trail, which follows Walnut Creek further north. The Timberline Park Trail hugs the creek heading south, passing into the gorgeous wooded landscape of the city's Timberline Park, a 54-acre expanse of land untouched except for the paved path. A branch of the trail heads north to provide a connection to the sidepath that runs along the length of Douglas Parkway into downtown Urbandale, while the main trail continues south, crossing over the creek and entering Deer Ridge Park. The charming and well-kept park offers a playground and picnic area perfect for some family fun, and once you've gotten your fill, the trail continues through the park past the back of a retirement community and comes to an end at a cul-de-sac on Rocklyn Drive, just a short block away from connecting to both part of the Raccoon River Valley Trail, which forms an 89-mile loop to the west, and the Clive Greenbelt Trail, which trail users can use to travel east into Clive and beyond.
