Welcome to the Waverly Rail Trail! Starting at the 480' Cedar River Bridge in downtown Waverly, the 10' wide asphalt trail proceeds southeast for about 7 miles over 8 bridges and under 2 roads and concludes at US Highway 63. At that point, the Denver- Jefferson Trail takes you into Denver about 2 miles south and the Readlyn-Grump Trail takes you to Readlyn about 6 miles east.
Back in the 1930’s, the Waverly City Council had some extra spending money and were contemplating how best to use it. My mother went before the Council and asked them to fund a city summer recreation for children.
