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!

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

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.

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.

The landslide are is somewhere between difficult and impossible to cross. We had to turn around at that point

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.

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.

Starting at the Land Trust Parking lot yields many variations of trails. There are many unmarked trails on the map and all are very easy. This is the most direct route to the north side overlook of Monte Sano State Park if starting at the the Land Trust parking lot.

5 stars for what it is; a nice meandering trail that is not overly technical.

This trail is a good one that I do on a regular basis. There are several good lookouts, especially near the power line. Good trees for eno hammocks and I see people relaxing up there pretty frequently. My dog likes this trail a lot too.

The lake is very nice but the trail is boring and there were lots of noisy, screaming children around. There's a nice covered bridge though. The best thing I got on this trail was instagram photos.

This was a great trail to run. The rocks weren't that bad. Nice, fast route!

Easy 30-45 min walk out. You can turn around and go back before it drops down if that is a concern. Very wooded - not heavily travelled since the Natural Wells trail had a land slide.
