Top Hiking Trails Surrounding Huntsville

It’s Fall, Ya’ll. There’s something about Huntsville’s weather in the fall. Maybe it’s the leaves changing, the smell of crisp air, or just the Alabama pride for our football teams. Regardless, fall in Huntsville just makes “Sweet Home Alabama” that much sweeter. If you’re looking to branch out this season and explore the beauty of fall surrounding Rocket City, this is the list for you! Here’s an insider’s guide to the top hiking trails in Huntsville:

Blevins Gap:


Blevins Gap is filled with 10.5 miles of trails and numerous paths to choose from. My personal favorite? The Bill and Marion Certain Trail in Blevins Gap! Although the 2.5 trek up to the viewpoint is rather elevated, the view of rocket city will not disappoint! And of course, it will leave you with ‘gram worthy photos to show off to your friends!

Monte Sano State Park:

Full of 20+ miles of trails, Monte Sano State Park offers stunning scenic views, mineral springs, playgrounds, and perfect picnic green space for every age group to enjoy.

Whether you’re looking for an intense hike to burn the calories or a casual stroll to take in the views, this park has you covered. Hiking, biking, trail running, fishing, picnicking, disk golfing, and dog walking are just a few of the many adventures to engage in. 

Rainbow Trail Loop: 

Although heavily trafficked at times, this loop is sure to deliver a calorie burning workout! Despite the unavoidable humidity in Huntsville, the wildflowers and trail views are great for motivation as you hike, mountain bike, or just walk your dog throughout the trail. 

If you need a change of scenery with your kids, this loop has a small kids play area at the beginning of the trail. How fun!
