The Grant Wood Trail became part of the Linn County Conservation park system in November 2005 when it was gifted to Linn County by the Linn County Trails Association.
An abandoned railroad line, this trail is approximately 10 miles long in total length and encompasses approximately 100 acres.
The trail stretches from Hwy. 13 on the east side of Marion, to near Martelle.
Within Linn County, the trail consists of three separate sections and therefore not a contiguous trail experience. (The 3.25 miles from Hwy. 13 east to Oxley Road is the longest portion, and has parking available on either end)
Short-term future plans for this trail include new rock surfacing on the above mentioned portion, and a tunnel under Highway 13 to connect the trail with the city of Marion trail system and the trails in Squaw Creek County Park. (NOTE: Federal grant monies have been secured to complete both of these projects in the near future)
This trail is part of our South Cedar District park management work unit - headqartered out of Squaw Creek County Park.
