Still not ready for prime time. Some great rock formations at the bottom, but I would omit the down-and-back again section until it has been traveled more often. Very easy to get lost in parts due to the newness of the trail.

It was lovely. I saw wild flowers, heard birds chirping, and saw many animals and insects

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.

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

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!

A nice hike but the views we're nothing special this time of year. Only two short uphills, the rest is easy walking.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
