Nice, lush, fairly flat 5k loop. The deer in the area are not afraid of humans! I was able to get so close to one, I was certain it was a large lawn ornament!

This trail is well maintained and well marked. There are a couple good overlooks and a lot of wildlife to see. I hiked this with a friend and we even spotted a young male deer.

Well marked trail with great overlooks of the city. Went to this trail on 4th of July to watch fireworks all over Huntsville. Amazing experience.

IF YOU SEE RED MARKERS you are not on Waterline. Easy to get turned around. Go back and find the trail again. The map on this app is invaluable. Other than that, fantastic hike. I’ve gone down Alms to Three Caves and back a good number of times but never did this loop. It’s much better. But beware that starting down Waterline is VERY steep.

The "trail" was mostly concrete, full sun and miserable. There were hardly any places to get to the river, the places that were available was grown up and "snakey".
It's a beautiful place for a picnic, to take the kids, grill out, bike, roller skate or skateboard; a horrible place for a "hike".
I don't normally attract mosquitoes but had to put on my mosquitoe repellent, they were BAD!
I have hiked quite a few hike off AllTrails and this one, by far, was the worst! It's worth checking out for family fun but definitely not a place for hiking.
AND PLEASE..... IF YOU HAVE DOGS, TAKE POOP BAGS AND PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG.

hey guys this is not kid friendly I am not very happy this took a very long time it is not fun if you are strong enough to then go for it I am just giving you all a warning it is very hard I can almost not catch my breath

Nice walk in the woods well marked - there is lots of poison oak so I didn’t get to go on some of the deviated trails due to my allergies

Good easy hike with the kids!

Pack water and a snack. Check your AllTrails to make sure you stay on trial as it can get confusing. Some of the trail is blocked by trees, go over them. If a challenge is what you seek, as a beginner it is what you will find. Leave the little kids at home and use bugs spray as there were ticks.

A great place for family, kids or a nice walk. I don't recommend for hiking, as it's mostly just a stroll through the woods.
Very beautiful place. They have bathrooms, a pavilion with snack machines, grills and different events from time to time.
Again, I don't recommend for hiking but it's worth visiting!

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

This is a great hike but should be rated moderate to hard. The tollgate trail is extremely rocky. Waterline Trail is extremely steep and the trail was easily lost. I did this hike yesterday with my dog and I was afraid of falling at Waterline. We made it and it was extremely pretty but I will go another way to avoid Waterline next time.

Good trail. Very easy walking. Saw some deer and lots of birds.

great trail.lots of trails that connect with others witch can create some confusion.well worth a day in the woods.

Easy, flat and to the point. Nice trail if you wanna get a good walk/run in. Lots of overlooks along the way and marked really well.

This is a newly completed trail on Land Trust property which takes off from the already established Alum Hollow trail. If you keep listening you'll hear water flowing and you can follow the sound to water flowing out of a small cave, a nice hidden gem.

About a mile in you come to a white sign that says it is the end of Talus trail though you can continue on and follow the markers down to the bottom and to the right. I love the rock formations at the end.

I have seen leashed dogs on the first part of the tail but i don't know if they continued on to the steeper part of the trail.

The steepness in parts of the trail make it a good cardio exercise for me.

I really enjoyed this trail. Found lots of geocaches along the way, too.

loved it, until Tollgate Trail from High Trail back to the parking lot. glad I had ankle support! very, very, very rocky.

Simple, pretty, and to the point.

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.

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.
