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.

The first mile or so of the hike is on the paved green way which detracts from it being a hike in the wilderness. It’s not a bad thing but it ends up being two miles on pavement. A little to much civilization for me. It’d be a fun little walk for a family or just anyone wanting to walk for exercise.

Simple, pretty, and to the point.

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

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.

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.

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.

Easy trail - kind of narrow in places

Beautiful trails if you're out for a short hike.

Beautiful, fun and a great workout!

Great hike. The last 3/4 mile is more overgrown than the rest.
