SLATER, Iowa - The state of Iowa is among the 12 states the Great American Rail-Trail runs through.
Still under construction, the project covers 3,700 miles across the United States.
The High Trestle Trail is included in the path.
"With the High Trestle Trail we bring a lot of people out of Ankeny, Woodward, we have met people literally from all over the world. I know the other towns in the county with the Heart of Iowa Trail are excited to get theirs paved and bring some new visitors to their town as well," said Shawn Birdsall, owner of Nite Hawk Bar and Grill in Slater, between Ankeny and Ames.
The Raccoon River Valley Trail and Connector is also found along the path.
WHO Channel 13 reports the Great American Rail-Trail is about halfway complete.
