The land Trust is beautiful. The trails are well maintained. The trails run along a creek that adds so much to the walk. You often can hear owls at dusk, see deer feeding on the trail, and discover the history of Huntsville on the mountain....More

We hiked the Alms House and Fagan Springs trails, well maintained and very well marked. Many trails intersect and the signposts are spot on! Lots of rock formations

Just short drive west of town, several trails converge near parking/ picnic area. Partially following railroad path trail leads to waterfall and scenic views.

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.
