It's fall and the leaves are starting to change. Join us for a moderate hike on Monte Sano Mountain. We will traverse 5.4 miles round trip with an elevation change of about 500 feet. This will take about 2.5 hours total. At the halfway point, we will take a short break for rest, snacks, and drinks. Bring 2+ bottles of water and hiking shoes/boots.


Due to the limited size of the trailhead parking lot, we will meet at the Books-A-Million parking lot (1001-7 Memorial Pkwy NW, Huntsville, AL 35801) and CARPOOL to the trailhead. Please do not plan on driving directly to the trailhead. This is not at Monte Sano State Park!

Trail Route from Land Trust Trailhead Parking Lot:
Tollgate > Dummy Line > Tollgate > Cold Springs > Bankhead Pkwy NE

This hike is intended for adults. You must be 18+ and sign a waiver to participate with HYP.
