Started at trailhead from Huntsville Land Trust parking lot on Cecil Ashburn Dr. Took Smokerise and followed to Sugar Tree, which led back to the parking lot.

Hiked the Sugar Tree/Smokerise trail a few weeks ago. I started o the Sugar Tree, and hiked back up through Smokerise to the trailhead. Sugar Tree is very, very rocky and requires a lot of coordination. Sugartree kind of gave me the creeps, but Smokerise had a lot of good creeks and what not. I also noticed a lot of damage to the area, I assume it is from a tornado that touched down. All in all a good hike. Would like to do it sometime in the fall. The abandoned car is kinda creepy.
