The local option sales tax took effect in 2004. The sales tax fund
will be used for community improvement. Money spent in local
businesses provides property tax dollars that support our school
and city. It also creates new jobs for people in our community and
gives them the ability to reinvest their paychecks locally.

Our annual dues are due, the cost is $20.00 per year per person. Please make checks payable to Friends of the High Trestle Trail P.O. Box 71, Madrid IA 50156. Your dues help support continued amenities for the High Trestle Trail. Some of our past projects have been the lighting and restroom at the Johnson Family Trailhead. We have also installed picnic tables and parking bumpers there. The new shelter and binoculars at the High Trestle Trail bridge were also recent accomplishments. Our annual spring cleanup in April keeps the trail beautiful. Please consider renewing your membership and encourage others to join. Thank You!
The
West Overlook binoculars have been installed !
