well we started out trying to hike the Land Trust Loop but we ended up making our own loop. the old railroad bed is extremely rocky but also pretty cool. we met a man on the trail who gave us some nice information regarding the old railroad and made us appreciate the history more. all in all it was our first time on the land trust and we really enjoyed it! thankful for an organization committed to conserving, preserving, and protecting!

To anyone who would like to attempt riding this I hope you come across this first and I would strongly advise against it unless you'd rather walk more than you ride, there is one really cool feature on bluff line trail in the middle of this loop that's insanely fun to ride but otherwise it's awful

Gorgeous trails on the loop. Have many options to make it as easy or hard as you like. Definitely one of my favorites.

Storm damage on the trails. Make sure you have ankle support.

The Old Railway Bed Trail is the best part of this 5.2 mile loop in my opinion for scenery. Takes about two hours to walk and is well marked for jogging, but will need good ankles and shoes as this is a rocky Trail. Well hiked, pet friendly, mountain bikers and joggers.

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.

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.

Nice and well maintained trail system. Lots of options for several various walks. We walked from the parking lot near Monte Sano State Park and went to the mines and back. I didn't think it was all that strenuous which has me thinking I did the wrong trail or something. I also didn't notice many views but I think they'd be nice in the wintertime. Great place for a hike near the center of Huntsville!
