Hiking at Monte Sano Mountain

Hiking & Biking Trails

It’s hard to determine what the outdoor enthusiasts of Huntsville prefer more: hiking or biking. Whatever the case, there’s a lot of both activities going on year-round.

For hikers, the beautiful lower Appalachia provides plenty of opportunities to explore terrains of various difficulties, from more advanced slopes of Monte Sano Mountain to the peaceful blacktop of the expansive Huntsville Greenway system.

And if you like mountain biking or road cycling, just one trip around Huntsville will show you why it's such a sought-after destination. The excitement of racing down rocky trails on the Rocket City’s numerous nature preserves is matched only by the serenity of enjoying Huntsville’s ever-expanding collection of paved trails.
