Amidon Memorial Conservation Area offers one of the only granite shut-ins in Missouri. The pink granite rocks make the area a popular swimming hole during the summer, and the 1.0-mile Cedar Glade Trail explores some of the more interesting features in the area. Located in Bollinger and Madison Counties, the 1,632-acre Amidon Memorial Conservation Area is a fantastic destination almost any time of year. Locally the area is often referred to as either Pink Rocks or Hahns Mill. The first nickname obviously refers to the main geological feature in the area, while Hahns Mill refers to the area’s history as a grain mill in the late 1800s.
