Hike the Land Trust Challenge: Rainbow Mountain
August 13 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
(Moderate / 2.5 hours / 3 miles) Follow our series of guided hikes throughout the entire year as we cover all of the Land Trust’s public trails! We’ll start with the easiest routes and increase our difficulty and distance along the way. This hike will begin from the pavilion and head through the playground on Stoneridge Trail until it ends at Jake’s Trail. From there we’ll head northeast to Rainbow Mountain Loop and then Spring Trail, which takes a turn straight downhill following alongside a creek bed before intersecting again with Rainbow Mountain Loop at the bottom. We’ll take the loop trail north to Ja Moo Ko to explore the eastern side of the preserve. Then after another short section of Rainbow Mountain Loop, we’ll cut across the middle of the property on Wild and Berry Trails. That brings you to the most popular and heavily-travelled area of Rainbow Mountain featuring the boulder field and Balance Rock before ending our hike back where we started.
Location: Rainbow Mountain Nature Preserve – 230 Stoneway Trail, Madison, AL 35758
