Join the Friends of the High Trestle Trail Group

Join efforts to support the trail and improve the Madrid community by joining the Friends of the High Trestle Trail! The group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Madrid Social Center (237 South State St).

Madrid volunteers formed Friends of the Trail over 12 years ago to support the development of the trail. Since then, projects have included

  • Creation of the Johnson Family Trailhead and Dalander Park
  • Construction of trail entrances in Madrid
  • Addition of trail signage
  • Placement of lighting, benches, observation binoculars, donation boxes
  • Addition of Lighthouse project with flashlights

Future projects include a replica coal mine entrance on the trail by Jensen park, relocation of the coal miner statue and history display to Dalander Park, addition of picnic table canopies, additional trail markers to show distance to the bridge, and addition of wildlife observation platforms for the Bird Friendly Iowa project.
