County parks are the gifts that keep giving. They are often of a good size, containing unique features, well-kept and rarely busy. Magnolia Bluff is one of these hidden gems. Located outside Evansville, the park is centered around a sandstone bluff. Trails lead around and also up the bluff. There are a few steep and rocky sections, but most of the trail is relatively easy terrain. The view from the top is lovely and worth the climb. If you don’t feel like schlepping, there is a nicely paved road that leads to the top and a picnic area, along with horse trails. An easy drive from Madison and a really enjoyable hike.
