The Saylorville trails are a perfect place for a bike ride. Beautiful scenery throughout and the trails themselves aren't what I would call challenging. A great family outing.

You would use this trail to go someplace else.

I live in Saylorville. I have ridden my bike on this route many times. I am usually riding into Des Moines for the Saturday morning Farmers Market. Other times I ride my bike up to Saylorville Lake or the High Trestle Bridge. It is a flat, easy bike ride that runs along woods which are along the Des Moines river. The trail is not usually crowded with other people. You can ride along in silence and listen to the birds in the trees and look at flowers along the trail and at some open spaces you can see the water flowing in the river.

Walk along the lake, through the woods, stop at the butterfly garden or visitor's center. Get as much exercise as you want in a lovely, lovely setting.

Hearty trail with beautiful, curvy trails

View fall colors while walking under tree canopies and brushy prairie grass. If you're we were...our dog alerted us to a curious deer peering behind a few scrub trees, just a few feet away. Whether walking, biking or taking your dog for a jog, the serene peacefulness of Saylorville Lake and trails will re-energize a fast paced soul to slow down and take in Nature's free gift. Stop and enjoy the visitor's center, picnic area or garden area. Your heart, mind and soul will thank you for it.

Good trail for all abilities

The Saylorville Trail is officially called the "Neal Smith Trail", and runs for about 25 miles. The north end is at Big Creek State Park, near Polk City, and the south end is basically underneath the University Avenue bridge in Des Moines.

This is one of the original bike trails in the area, and one of my favorites. The trail is very, very flat from the Birdland Marina (in DSM) all the way up to the base of the Saylorville Dam... which is about 9 miles long. If you are just an occasional biker, or have family with you, this is probably the section you'll want to stick with. It generally follows the Des Moines River, and has a LOT of shade. So, even if it's warm outside, the trees will provide a lot of shade for you. However, there isn't going to be a lot of water available, so plan accordingly.

If you want a slightly more challenging ride, you can head bike along the northern section of the trail. There is a long hill to get up to the top of the dam, and then the trail has some significant drops and climbs afterwards. There are a few areas where the trees thin out and you'll encounter some wide-open spaces, too.

The pavement is in good condition, mostly. There are a couple of rough bumpy spots, but at least one of those is going to be fixed this summer (2016). Otherwise, I can't complain.

And be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife on your way. Along the river, you'll sometimes see deer & turkey, and on the river you might spot a blue heron or the occasional pelican.

Vistas, Gorges, Forests, Oh My What a Trail!

This wide, paved trail is part of the Iowa network, and goes from Saylorville lake to the heart of Des Moines. It's a beautifully scenic trailing, offering forests, river gorges, lake views, a pass by the marina, etc. Be aware that it's a bit hilly and has some blind corners. And watch for pedestrians and runner if you're biking it, which I have done a number of times.

Best Kept secret in Des Moines

Easy access from many places. Early AM for birds from early spring - Blue Indigos and Orioles to the Pelican Migration and Fall's numerous duck and geese. Its a place to walk or ride a bike - cyclists need to be aware of walkers. The picnic areas in what's know as Cottonwood are well maintained by the US Army corps of engineers. There are numerous shelters that can be rented and playground areas. It goes along the river so there is that wonderful view as you are riding or walking- Plus more birds such as Blue and Green Herons. At the end of the day you can see wild turkeys and many deer... so many along the trail you can almost shake there hands. The trail can be a little bumpy but I hear there is funding to recondition it. I think its a fantastic trail.
