Monte Sano Mountain

Monte Sano State Park

Monte Sano overlooks the Rocket City from the northeast, and it's long been Huntsville’s premiere destination for a break from hectic city life.

Monte Sano State Park offers 2,140 acres of gorgeous outdoor bliss, perfect for:

  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Camping
  • Playing

Twenty miles of hiking trails and 14 miles of biking trails of various difficulty levels provide never-ending exploration for outdoor enthusiasts of any age. An 18-hole disc golf course gives players a beautiful view of nature as they play, and the fully outfitted playground and recreation fields ensure no member of the family will ever be bored.

Come see why, after all these years, Huntsville residents and visitors still choose to kick back and enjoy the nature of the “Mountain of Health” – the meaning of the name “Monte Sano.”

After you enjoy the great outdoors at Monte Sano State Park, check out what else there is to do and see in the Monte Sano district.
