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.

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.

Awesome trail

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