Simple, pretty, and to the point.

Good exercise. Saw some interesting rock formations and several antler scrapes.

Overall a good trail with a great climb at the beginning, but toward the end there's a long section that's filled with small rocks that are easy to stumble / twist an ankle on, especially this time of year when they're hidden in the leaves.

This is my favorite set of Land Trust trails. Alms House is a pleasant walk through quiet woods down to Three Caves, then Waterline wakes you up (and up and up and up) with its climb to Bluffline. There were no ropes when I went last week, and ice on the rocks made for a tricky scramble. Bluffline lets you get your breath back as you head to the parking lot.

Sunset is amazing here. Sunrise is also impressive.

Had views of both sides of the mountain. Great for young kids

Have hired a couple of times and enjoyed it. Will go again.

It was pretty nice. It has a lot of beautiful views. Just if you go make sure you have cash .It costs to get in

good views. was surprised to see the observatory, didn't realize it was there.

nice and easy hike. We missed the leaves by a week. good hike overall.

Easy trail with a couple of good views. The beginning climb is fairly easy, then a pretty walk along a ridge line before you get to a couple of good view points. Trails are marked and cleared, also a couple of park benches. The first bench is at the top of the beginning climb. Great trail for a fall hike with the kiddos.

Rugged trail, but beautiful and worth it.

The landslide are is somewhere between difficult and impossible to cross. We had to turn around at that point

This would make for a great running trail - if you're into that sort of thing.

The North Plateau Loop (blue) is the most scenic. 1.2 miles approximately.

Great trails, from nice wide paved trails to unpaved wooded trails which pass by creek and swampy area. Very nice and will go back soon. Had no problems with mosquitoes, and encountered many walkers, bikers, joggers. Our total trip was around 7 miles. Very nice. Super easy trails.

MOSQUITO REPELLENT!!! DO NOT GO HERE WITHOUT IT!!! If you're looking for a place to go hiking, this is not it. If you're in the mood for a walk down a paved path, then this is the spot for you. The scenery was decent and the path is well maintained, but it's definitely not a hiking trail.

Great trail. Probably some of the best views of any trail in Huntsville at the top. Highly recommend for all skill levels.
