Green Meadows North Trail Description

Running through suburban neighborhoods on the western edge of Johnston, IA, the Green Meadows North Trail offers a pleasant dose of nature and serves as a great recreational amenity for nearby residents. The trail also connects in to Johnston's excellent network of paved, multi-use trails, enabling residents to travel off-road into downtown Johnston, and even further into Des Moines and beyond via the region's world-class trail system. The Green Meadows North Trail begins in the east at NW 86th Street, where another paved path leads to the Beaver Creek Elementary School, and the beginning of the Augustine Trail also lies just a short block away. The trail curves westward along a tree-lined path, heading into Pointe Vista Park, a charming neighborhood park with playgrounds, picnic tables, and even a small fishing pond. The trail continues a short distance to NW 100th Street, where the trail ends just across the street from the newly constructed Johnston High School, accessible via sidewalk - making the trail a handy way for students in the nearby neighborhoods to walk or bike to school.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Pointe Vista Park on Enfield Drive, just east of NW 97th Street.
