Amidon Memorial Conservation Area is a 1,630-acre area located on the upper reaches of the Castor River in Bollinger and Madison counties.
The forest's timber species range from mixed hardwoods to shortleaf pine to cedar glades. A granite shut-ins on the Castor River adds an interesting geologic feature.
Amidon Memorial Conservation Area makes a beautiful fall hike with the mixture of colors. The area is family friendly, but good walking shoes are recommended as the rocks can get slick.
