In brief, you should know the following about us: In 2005, the City of Woodward was awarded a grant from Trees Forever. This grant was used to bring together community members to brainstorm on ways to enhance the quality of living in Woodward. Many great ideas came out of these brainstorming sessions. Many involved felt passionate about what they had learned and what could be accomplished. As a result, the non-profit community organization, Envision Woodward! was formed.
Woodward High Trestle Trailhead
The Woodward High Trestle Trailhead is the western most starting point of the High Trestle Trail. Envision Woodward!, along with your generous donations, will spearhead the completion of the landscape plan as shown on this website.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony took place at the Trailhead on Saturday, April 2, 2011. The Trailhead offers a pleasant park setting with a Visitor’s Center, separate bathroom facilities, bicycle racks, picnic tables, and trash receptacles.
The High Trestle Trail
The High Trestle Trail is a recreational trail that spans 25 miles between Ankeny and Woodward which officially opened April 30, 2011. There is also a trail connection to the Heart of Iowa Nature Trail in Slater. Public trail use is intended for pedestrians, bicyclists, skaters, nature enthusiasts, and cross‐country skiers. Equestrian riders will have access to the trail between Woodward & Slater. The biggest feature of the trail is the 130 foot tall bridge that will span 2,300 feet over the Des Moines River between Madrid and Woodward. The bridge will offer six overlooks, great places to take in the breathtaking views of the river valley. Woodward has attracted a lot of interest at our trailhead. The Woodward High Trestle Trailhead is the closest trailhead to the bridge so many people will want to launch their big adventure from the western start‐point of the trail.
