Rode this trail the first weekend in September and really enjoyed it. It's about 25 miles from Ankeny to Woodyard. It's paved, flat and quite wide. The highlight of course is the bridge over the Des Moines river between Madrid and Woodyard. Also stopped at bars that are right along the trail in Madrid and Slater. I would recommend starting in Woodyard and head east and go as far as you want before returning. The west end of the trail is the most scenic.
