This hike provides some really views of the north end of Monte Sano State Park and the east side of Monte Sano Mountain.
This is a hidden treasure inside monte sano park!!
Stone Cuts Trail is an interesting find. I hear some people are skilled enough to bike it. Its a cool little path though.
Unique rock fissure makes you wonder "from what and when".
The hike is downhill from the parking lot on typical North Alabama terrain meaning a lot of rocks and roots. It starts back up as you near the Stone Cuts, which always amaze me. The trail is along the base of the bluffs, which become cave like in some places. I never tire of seeing these rock formations. There is a little vertical challenge at the end. This is one of my favorite trails.
Enjoyed this hike. The incline was slightly difficult in some place but my fitness isn't currently the best. I really loved seeing the rock formations.
Very cool, unique route. Probably not a terribly difficult hike, but if planning on running this little trail make sure you bring your A-game! Lots of rocky, technical terrain that will eat your ankles if you lose focus even for a second. Coupled with the elevation changes this is a fairly difficult, but extremely fun running trail. Will definitely be coming back to this one!
