Walnut Trace Park Trail Description

Beginning at the end of the Bob Layton Trail in Urbandale, the Walnut Trace Park Trail allows walkers, cyclists, and others to continue exploring the peaceful meadows alongside Walnut Creek for over another mile. Running along the course of the creek in the preserved natural space of Bent Creek Park, the trail passes behind newly constructed suburban homes, taking trail users from Meredith Drive in the south, under 156th Street, and then up to Waterford Drive via a wide sidepath between the road and the creek. Already popular among neighborhood residents as a resource for dog-walking and jogging, as this area continues to develop and expand the trail will help ensure that residents remain connected to the area's stellar trail system.
