Trail is repaired and they did good job. Very nice to have it back

Trail is totally open/complete from Baxter to Des Moines (E29th Street). Trail from East of Bondurant to Des Moines is all new concrete pavement. Trail from East of Bondurant to Baxter is mostly asphalt, but its condition varies. There is a section between Mingo and Baxter that is Gravel. This is fine compacted gravel, but is much rougher then most surfaces. This section of gravel is about 4 miles long. Distance from E29 in Des Moines to Baxter is about 28 Miles. Even with the section of gravel, I highly recommend trail. Lots of beauty in the Chicaqua Valley.

Paving is 95% done from Bondurant to just east of Berwick. There are some gaps so you need to be careful. Especially at intersections. Only about half of the dirtwork is done.

This afternoon, the paving (concrete) equipment was visible just North of NE 62 ave. It might be rideable before the snow flies.

Connector from the trail head east of Bondurant into town is done and open. They have poured concrete to about 1/2 mile west of Bondurant. Dirt work and grading is done all the way to Berwick.
