Runner's Paradise

Bridge 23 is a 23 acre property located 12 miles from the West Des Moines Jordan Creek mall/George Flagg Parkway exit. The property is highlighted with a 7 acre pond in the center of the property.

The property is ideal for running with over grass trails around the pond and throughout the property. 

 

It also is at the intersection of 3 gravel roads with large rolling hills.

 

The property is bordered all along the west side by the famous Great Western Trail, a 17 mile paved bike/running trail that connects the cities of Martensdale/Cumming with Waterworks park/Gray's Lake and downtown Des Moines.
