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!

Decided to take a break on our road trip and stopped here. Got to the gate to learn there was a small fee (cash only) to get into the park. No big deal, but we didn’t have cash on us so we drove down and took the road entrance. Easy trail. Really well marked. Lots of stuff to see along the way with great views. Nothing overwhelmingly spectacular but definitely beautiful. Overall solid trail and fun experience!
Definitely would be great and easy with kids as well!

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

Well marked, beautiful trail. A must for Huntsvile hiking.

Very well marked. We took 4 kids, ages 4-8, and I wore a baby on my back. They navigated a lot of the trail for us by looking for the blue marks on trees. The middle of the trail is on the side of the mountain, so make sure the kids watch and have them stay to the side of the trails great walking!

Well marked trail with lots of View points. The waterfall was a nice bonus.

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.

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.

Sunset is amazing here. Sunrise is also impressive.

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

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.

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

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

Storm damage on the trails. Make sure you have ankle support.

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

I would rate this more moderate than easy. Toll gate has a steady incline for at least a mile and it's very rocky. It's a very nice hike.

After breaking away from the other trail heads his hike is STEEP. Not the easy hike I was looking for. After gaining the altitude at the beginning the hike becomes easy but that first part was a steady climb. On the way back I took the West Bluff Trail which gave the best views off the hill.
