Another Way to Enjoy Lake Monticello
The Allen Maxwell Nature Conservation Trail was offi cially open for nature lovers in January 2017. Signs were erected at both ends of the trail by former Mayor Zack Tucker. The trail begins at the end of the levee on the southeast side of the lake and offi cially ends on the Windy Hills access by the Harold West Mini-Park. The trail is approximately fi ve feet wide and was funded completely by the state. The future plans include making the trail go around the entire lake, according to Monticello City Clerk Andrea Chambers.
