At almost 100 acres this is a great park right in the city of Madison.

There are no specific trails in this conservancy, so just choose the path that looks the best to you.  It would be hard to get lost here and all the trails put together are only about 3 miles.   There are some hills, but nothing too serious.

  • bathrooms in the parking lot
  • small parking lot
  • free
  • commonly will see turkeys
  • outstanding colors in the fall

Here is a link to a map of the Conservatory (including the hikes, bathrooms, and other important parts of the park):
