This efficient hike takes you from the Amana Colonies’ historic train depot, through prairie, and then loops around Lily Lake, which is filled with wild geese, ducks, and water lilies during the summer. The trail connects the village of East Amana to Middle Amana. This popular walk originates in Amana and winds around a lake filled with water lilies. Expect the whole gamut of other trail users, from tourists to bicyclists to runners to moms and grandmammas walking with their little ones. The Amana Colonies are a National Historic Landmark that invites visitors in to share their food, crafts, and heritage. One of the most successful utopian communities in the history of the United States, the members of the original Amana colony gave up wages in exchange for housing, medical care, clothing, food, and education.
