Great Hiking opportunity.

We hiked the Alms House and Fagan Springs trails, well maintained and very well marked. Many trails intersect and the signposts are spot on! Lots of rock formations

We walked from the parking area along the Alms House trail to the 3 caves. It was nice to be in the shade for most of the walk but it was still hot. Bring water and good shoes. The 3 caves were closed with a locked gate but we could feel the wonderful cool breeze from the gate. When we... More

Just short drive west of town, several trails converge near parking/ picnic area. Partially following railroad path trail leads to waterfall and scenic views.

Definitely take some time out of the city to enjoy this natural beauty. Lots of great places to drive bike and trails too. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the beauty. Everything does seem to be well kept it's not very crowded for sure.

With so many different places to visit, what is not to love? We have visited each preserve at least once and found that some outshine the rest for us, but that could simply be a matter of opinion. The serenity of these trails and the natural beauty makes them perfect for quiet hikes. We love visiting here!

Wow! We love to welcome folks to Concerts at Three Caves. So fun and the venue is one of a kind. Loved the Muscle Shoals Revue! Hike a bit on the natural trails on the Monte Sano Nature Preserve and the rest of the 48 miles of trails.

This is one of Huntsville's true gems. A park environment with miles and miles of trails, butting up against Monte Sano State Park and other natural areas. Definitely worth a visit and more importantly your support.
