MIDAS Council of Governments is in the process of developing a trails plan for the region which includes Calhoun, Hamilton, Humboldt, Pocahontas, Webster and Wright Counties. This plan will identify existing trails, proposed trails, and the region’s priorities when it comes to funding trail projects. MIDAS developed a survey to gather information on trail usage and priorities .  Anyone interested in taking the survey online can go to or you can complete a hard copy of the survey (attached) and e-mail it, fax it to (515) 576-7184, or mail it to MIDAS at 602 1st Ave S, Fort Dodge, IA 50501. All surveys are to be completed and returned by Friday, April 24th.    Please forward the survey to anyone that would be interested in participating.  If you have any questions, let me know.  Thank you!
