The rains cleared just in time for Urbandale residents to get out and enjoy the city’s trails Sunday.

Residents joined together with Mayor Bob Andeweg for the annual Tour De Trails event.

They walked some of the city’s 40-mile trail system before stopping to plant a tree in Northview Estes Park in honor of Arbor Dy.

Mayor Andeweg says this event is a good way to keep people aware of the trail and park systems in their backyards.

“We try and highlight the trails and try and make sure are aware of what we have and get out there and use them.”

Each year the city works to highlight a different portion of the city’s trail system.
