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 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.

On an early March Saturday morning we traversed the Wildflower Trail adjaent Fagan Creek. I imagine the flowers will appear with the onset of spring but I enjoyed my hike just the same. We took the opportunity to find a few of the local geocaches and scout out additional trails for our next visit. Folks planning on a visit should... More

We went hiking at Rainbow Mountain Trail. It was beautiful. You can see lots of rock formation, and the trail is challenging, we had to hop between rocks and it was fun. The trail head parking lot is blocked now, but we parked on the street near the water tower.

My husband and I stayed overnight in Huntsville while driving to northern Florida. We thought we'd take a hike before leaving. We ended up hiking the Bill and Marion Certain trail in Blevins Gap. What a beautiful area, and such a great view from the top of the mountain. The spring flowers here must be amazing. We hope to return... More

The Land Trust of North Alabama is dedicated to supporting the retention of greenspace for the benefit of Huntsville residents. In addition, they provide concerts periodically at the Three Caves location north east of the Hospital. My wife and I attend these and support this organization whenever we can.

The Land Trust of North Alabama provides miles of great hiking trails in and around Huntsville. They have trail maintenance days when volunteers can get together to work on maintaining old trails and creating new trails.
