County Wide Trail Master Plans Being Developed
Iowa Heartland RC&D received two grants from the National Park Service in October of 2014, as well as approval to extend the projects for 2015, 2016 and 2017. The purpose of these grants is to develop trail master plans for Jasper, Madison, Marion and Warren counties, with the end goal of linking to the Central Iowa Trail network.
We are in the final phase of developing the county wide trail plans. The hard surface and soft surface planning maps are done for each county and available on our website. We are now in the process of writing a plan to accompany these maps. Early next year we plan to present the completed plan to the County Conservation Board and Board of Supervisors for each county asking them to adopt it.
