Great hikes!

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... read more

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.

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
