Been going to Nature Trail on Green Mountain for over 30 years. It's better than ever! Perfect place for a nice stroll around the lake, a picnic, or just take a chair and sit by the water. My wife and I love taking our dog for a walk there on Sunday afternoons. He loves it too. Best things the Madison county commission does for the community. Please help keep it clean.

We walked from the parking area along the Alms House trail to the 3 caves. It was nice to be in the shade for most of the walk but it was still hot. Bring water and good shoes. The 3 caves were closed with a locked gate but we could feel the wonderful cool breeze from the gate. When we got back to the parking area at 5 PM it was a lot more crowded than when we arrived at 3 PM. It was a beautiful way to spend the afternoon.
