Grant Wood Trail

Grant Wood Trail

Grant Wood Trail
The Grant Wood Trail was acquired in late 2004 when gifted to the Conservation Board by the Linn County Trails Association. The 100 acre parcel is a former Milwaukee Road railroad right-of-way from Marion to Martelle, IA.  Though not a contiguous 10 mile stretch, it does provide a nice 6+ mile loop from Highway 13 on the west, going east for 3.25 miles and then back to the current trailhead.

An underpass was created under Highway 13 to connect with Marion to the west and Waldo Rock's Park.  The trail is hard surfaced to this park and then a limestone screening surface for the next 3.5 miles along with a turf shoulder. 


The Grant Wood Trail is located off of Hwy 13, near the intesection of Hwy 151 at 6303 Partners Ave, Marion. 



A prehistoric bog can be found in the western section just east of Waldo's Rock Park
