Land Trust Of North Alabama Three Caves Reviews & Ratings
About another mile down the road past the Madison County Nature trail is a gravel parking lot to Land Trust trails. The main trail is rolling hills but very easy until the end when you get to the waterfalls. It is steep there. I've visited in January and February and the creeks were flowing. The creek sounds along the trails are nice. I've also hiked the Eastern and Western Plateau Loops. They are a nice walk through the woods but much of these border along homes and the eastern trail had 2 place to cross a creek. I didn't get my shoes wet but in a couple of places had to watch out for mud.
This is an intriguing and beautiful spot, preserved by the Land Trust of North Alabama. The trails in this area are not too challenging, and the landscape is forgiving. Watch out for snakes in this area. The caves are not accessible to the public, but there are often music events and similar where they are opened up to ticket-holders. In the meantime, you can stand at the gates to the caves and enjoy the cool-breeze that wafts up from underground. A refreshing way to end a long, hot hike!
Beautiful location for a concert! Bands were awesome! Food truck, wine and great selection of beer. We had a great time and can't wait for the next one.
Nice views. Food that was being served wasnt that good. Raw hamburger twice.
This is where the well heeled come to "party". It's where the unadventurous come to explore Huntsville's "underground".
