The Walnut Creek Trail serves as an important trail connector in West Des Moines. On its northern end, it seamlessly links to the Clive Greenbelt Trail, which heads west and, in turn, connects to the Raccoon River Valley Trail, which spans a whopping 80+ miles. At this end of the trail, the Walnut Creek Trail also provides access to Colby Park, a signature recreational amenity for the City of Windsor Heights, where you'll find a community center, pavilion, ball fields, and a playground.
From the park, the paved pathway winds through a wooded residential area. At its southern end, the Walnut Creek Trail connects to the Bill Riley Trail, which ties into Des Moines' expansive trail network.
At its northern end, parking is available in Windsor Heights at Colby Park (at the intersection of 69th and School streets).
