Grant Wood Trail - Martelle Trailhead

Recreationalists can enter the Martelle section of the trailhead on the east edge of Martelle. This blacktopped one half-mile section of trail is a great addition to the community of Martelle, providing residents and visitors alike a recreational corridor that can be used year-round.

Most of this section of trail is lined by trees planted by the Plattenberger family providing shade to those on the trail.  Prairie remnant grasses and flowers can also be observed in the wetland area along the north side of the trail.   Local ecotype prairie seed is planned to be used to plant more native prairie habitat directly along the trail in the coming years.
