Land Trust Loop is a 5.2 mile loop trail located near Huntsville, Alabama and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
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.
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!!
