Bethel Spring Nature Preserve is a 360-acre property on Keel Mountain with 200 acres open for outdoor recreation.
The preserve currently offers hikers a little under two miles of free trails to explore from dawn to dusk daily, including upland forest, working farmland, historic sites, an environmentally-significant spring and creek, as well as one of Madison County’s largest waterfalls.
We invite you to join the Land Trust of North Alabama and Von Braun Astronomical Society for an evening of stargazing at Bethel Spring. Much of nature’s beauty can be enjoyed at night! Far from city lights and perfectly timed for the crescent moon, we’ll appreciate a starry view of the dark skies above with guidance and information from VBAS Board Member Don Martin. Bag chairs recommended, please bring red lights if possible.
