We hike on a lot of the Land Trust trails and continue to be impressed by the variety of scenery. Some of our favorites include Fagin Springs, Old Railroad Bed, Young Kennedy (South of water line), Bill & Marion Certain, Rainbow Mountain/JaMooko Loop and Wade Mountain Trails. The best time to visit is between November and April when there there are less problems with ticks, snakes and poison ivy.

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.

Just short drive west of town, several trails converge near parking/ picnic area. Partially following railroad path trail leads to waterfall and scenic views.

Definitely take some time out of the city to enjoy this natural beauty. Lots of great places to drive bike and trails too. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the beauty. Everything does seem to be well kept it's not very crowded for sure.
