Definitely take some time out of the city to enjoy this natural beauty. Lots of great places to drive bike and trails too. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the beauty. Everything does seem to be well kept it's not very crowded for sure.

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.

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...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...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 Land trust has a website that might provide information on horse trails. I have never seen any on the land trust trails though. There is a trail that does allow horses that starts just north of Athens and goes to almost... More
