Just as today's four-lane highways provide Dallas County residents with easy access to Des Moines, the railroads of the early part of the 19th century served the same purpose. The Redfield depot stands as a reminder of Dallas County's remarkable railroad history.

The Raccoon River Valley Trail was built on the abandoned Chicago Northwestern Railroad line that ran by the Redfield Depot..
Now a resting spot for trail users, the depot still provides travelers entry and exit to the town of Redfield.

Facilities include restrooms, indoor resting area, charging station and a railroad display area. The Redfield Development Commission operates a concession stand on weekends from June 1 to October 30.
