Visitors to Madison County’s Middle River Park use both the hard surfaced trail system as well as the park road system to hike through the park and the adjoining Winterset City Park to the north. During winter season, the road system is closed and utilized as cross-country ski trail system connecting to the road system in the adjacent Winterset City Park to provide for over 3 miles of wind-protected ski trails.
