***COVID-19 Update: Please review our updated trail rules before your next visit. All pavilions, playgrounds, and picnic areas are closed.
Located in the City of Madison not far off of Hughes Road, this preserve offers a little over three miles of trail featuring some difficult but beautiful climbs thanks to the rocky terrain. Known for its interesting rock formations, “Balance Rock” is a particular favorite. In the winter when the trees are bare, you can see views of Madison below. A large pavilion is available for picnics as well as a playground making this an comfortable starting point for families to explore the outdoors.
Additional parking available up the hill next to the water tower.
