Very good hike for the family. Took our 6 year old, and blue heeler; they both had fun. It passes by the two lookouts, the amphitheater, the observatory and a ravine of about 60 ft deep with a couple of other trails running underneath. The only challenging part was the narrow path next to the ravine as we had to share it with a couple of cyclist passing by, making it a little dangerous for them. It was varied enough to keep us entertained. Looking forward to doing it again once it's lusher with vegetation. Uploaded a couple of panoramic pictures.

Very beautiful set of footpaths. We practically had this place to ourselves. So peaceful.

Perfect short hike in S Huntsville, 20 minutes from road to trail. A great getaway, my whole family enjoyed the hike.

I did this trail loop 3X today while running. for a total of 10 miles. Good trail for running, for the most part. There are a couple areas that are rocky, so watch your step. Today all the leaves had fallen, hiding some treacherous roots and rocks. Took a hard, ungraceful fall right in front of three women. Thankfully no broken bones, was able to get back up and finish my workout.

Beautiful walk! Music in the lodge, a nice trail around the lake with a lot of side trails and places for the dog to swim. Very enjoyable and easy walk. Great features!
