With so many different places to visit, what is not to love? We have visited each preserve at least once and found that some outshine the rest for us, but that could simply be a matter of opinion. The serenity of these trails and the natural beauty makes them perfect for quiet hikes. We love visiting here!

Wow! We love to welcome folks to Concerts at Three Caves. So fun and the venue is one of a kind. Loved the Muscle Shoals Revue! Hike a bit on the natural trails on the Monte Sano Nature Preserve and the rest of the 48 miles of trails.

This is one of Huntsville's true gems. A park environment with miles and miles of trails, butting up against Monte Sano State Park and other natural areas. Definitely worth a visit and more importantly your support.

The LandTrust has maintained the trail system in the Huntsville Community so well. There is hiking for all skill levels and the true beauty of our community is hidden on these trails. I encourage everyone to take time and enjoy the beauty - behind the scenes...in the woods!

My husband and I like to hike here even more than in the state park! (And only partly because there's no fee!) The trails are great and I like that it feels more natural and off the beaten path. The downside of this is that the trails are not really that well marked. Sometimes you need to really keep a... More

So far all the trails I've been on have been very well maintained, marked and worth the time to hike. Only complaint I could have is the Trough Springs trail, trail markers soon disappear, and I never made it to the historic sight. I was told the historic marker is missing too. Called the Land Trust office and was expecting... More

We hiked the Railroad Bed trail on Monte Sano Preserve and found the trails to be well marked and reasonably traversed by most people of average walking abilities. Several trails exist of various lengths. Paved parking lot and not overly busy. One could spend a good portion of the day hiking all the trails. There was some small creeks flowing... More

We went on a hike to Green Mtn. The group was anyone who showed up-advertised in paper. There were different ages, levels of fitness, even two 11 year olds and we all kept up and got along.

The North Alabama Land Trust is comprised of several different properties: Wade Mountain Preserve north of Huntsville near the Toyota plant; Blevins Gap Preserve off Carl T. Jones drive between Jones Valley and Hampton Cove; Monte Sano Preserve on Monte Sano mountain; and Rainbow Mountain Trailhead in Madison, AL. All feature good but primitive (un-paved) hiking trails. Numerous trails wind... More

The Land Trust Trails are well maintained, and the views are great. Trails vary from easy to difficult and vary in distance. Such an asset to the area.
