Hike the Land Trust Challenge: Green Mountain
April 24, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
(Moderate / 3 hours / 4.6 miles) Follow our series of guided hikes throughout the entire year as we cover all of the Land Trust’s public trails! We’ll start with the easiest routes and increase our difficulty and distance along the way. Work your way across beautiful Green Mountain Nature Preserve! While this hike is rated moderate, it’s important to note there are sections of elevation change and particularly rocky terrain. We’ll start from crowd-favorite Alum Hollow Trail and descend down the mountainside on Ranger Trail. Cut across along Gibson Trail to Talus before continuing the downhill climb. Talus Connector will take us to Three Sisters Loop then back to Ranger Trail for the hike up to Alum Cave. From there, we’ll cross the creek below the waterfall to Oak Bluff Trail and follow Stonefly Trail to the northern boundary of the preserve. Congratulations the rest is an easy return hike towards the trailhead via West and East Plateau Trails. It’s a lot of ground to cover but you’ll be glad you did!
Location: Green Mountain Nature Preserve (Alum Hollow) – 13800 South Shawdee Road, Huntsville, AL 35803
