Land Trust Loop is a 5.2 mile loop trail located near Huntsville, AL and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Had great hike from this trail head on a couple of the trails that intersect this main trail. The Rail Bed trail is very hard being on the old rail bed, the rocks used for the bed are larger than modern railroad rocks and very treacherous to traverse after the rain the day before. We hiked 3/4 of the trail and picked up the Fagan Springs trail and found the spring. It was cold and clear. Very refreshing. We made our way down the mountain on the Alms House trail and found the foundation next to a creek. We began exploring for the caves when the weather changed for the worst, with a menacing sounding thunder storm coming up on the opposite side of the mountain from us. It was a fast ascent through the trail system to get back to the Trail Head that was very changing. My only negative would be that the falls and creek were mostly dry this time of year.
Great trails clean well marked (deff better if water was flowing)
Great afternoon hike, completed in two hours. My only complaint is the Tollgate stretch of the trail, it's made up of really large gravel, easy to slip or roll an ankle while climbing uphil.
Wear sturdy shoes, it is an awesome hike!
Best trail we've been on
Great hike! Right after rain and rocks and trails slick but made for a cool hike at the beginning of summer! Tons of trails to hike here!!
Excellent trail, terrain was difficult as noted. I can't wait to run it again!
enjoyable hike, close by.
Nice hike with some elevation. Very rocky in places
Excellent trail for running or hiking. A bit difficult though.
Went a day after heavy rains. Very muddy and wet. Lots of water on streams and drainage which was nice on otherwise dry beds. This loop has some elevation change and very rocky.
A lengthy clearly defined trail we really enjoyed ourselves but the route wasn't clearly marked and we did have to double back a few times.
Have done the trail at least 10, maybe more times. A great trail to practice for the AT or Pinholti. Haven't been able in the past 3 years due to 2 knee replacements but plan to go back in May.
great loop with creeks and waterfalls to see along the way and right in the city too.
My girlfriend and I started on Old Railroad Bed in the land trust parking lot a turned off on High Trail, then took the Bluff Line Trail back. It was very purtty and is now one of our favorite routes except for seeing 5 snakes.
Nice walk in the woods. There are some very nice areas at stream crossings. They only run after a rain. The best part is the proximity to town.
