Nice out of the way trail, Not what I expected, but a nice hidden little Gym. There's a nice little Waterfall and a Overhang, Somewhat like a cave where People camp, it's right off the main trail, if your not looking for it you will miss it, Just listen for the water and it will guide you to it, If you stop hearing water you've passed it, Good Hiking.

We really loved this trail! I took my 6 year old daughter. She was tired by the end but she wants to go again! We are beginners so there was a couple of spots that was tough but, overall it was a great trail!

This is such a great afternoon activity for all ages. The trail isn't too strenuous but it requires more effort than what I would consider just a walking trail. The creeks that run through here are beautiful as is the waterfall! I suggest bringing a hammock if you have one because there are several hammock worthy areas along the trail!

It was an easy hike it took about an hour, and led to a beautiful waterfall. Would be perfect for families with children.

Hiked this trail with our 10 year old Grandson today. Along the trail we noticed the entry and exit points for the East and West Plateau Loops. After doing the loopback to Alum cave we crossed the stream to see a small waterfall. Upon return we turned left onto the East Plateau Loop. Once back at the Alum Trail we headed back to the beginning bypassing the West Plateau Loop. Neither of these Loops are marked on the map at the trailhead.

Great trail!! Beautiful views of mountains & waterfall. Hike is listed as Easy but I'd say once you get close to falls..it's a bit steep. I'd say it was more of an easy hike in beginning & moderate as you near the falls. Well worth it to see the waterfall & cave. Would definitely hike this again!!

New trail in the Green Mountain Nature Preserve under management of the Land Trust of North Alabama (http://www.landtrustnal.org/nature-preserves) Nice gentle ups and downs, however, there is one short steep part at the trail's end just before Alum Hollow Cave. Total trail was about 2.3 miles out and back and took me and the hubby about 1.5 hours to complete. Only met a couple of people on the way back to the parking lot, so not crowded at all! Really nice day trip for us!
