Madrid (pronounced (MAD-rid) is an energetic, growing community in the southeast corner of Boone County. The continued development of the High Trestle Trail, which cuts through its center along the downtown’s south side attracts more than 100,000 people each year. This 25-mile trail has received international recognition for its centerpiece, the High Trestle Trail Bridge, which sits just over two miles to Madrid’s west and at 130’ high, spans the valley at more than one-half mile! Dalander Park is a favorite spot to park, offload the bikes and head down the trail in either direction. Plenty of food and beverages are available from many local establishments situated a stone’s throw along the trail. Didn’t bring a bike? Don’t worry, they’ve got bike rentals covered too!
