Trail construction has begun on our first trail! Visit our Facebook page for the most recent news. A section from Smith Wildlife Area near Council Bluffs to Highway L-34 was built in 2017. This section is expected to be completed to Weston, Underwood, and Neola within the next three years. Once this trail is completed, our second priority is a trail from Council Bluffs northward to Crescent and the Hitchcock Nature Center.

We are always looking for volunteers to join our committee, and for financial donations to help fund the trail system.
