Trail Description
About this trail
Trail is excellent for training. One steep climb after another with some really good downhill. Very rocky. Trail shared with ORV's so be careful. (They mostly ride weekends and you can hear them coming for the most part.)

Review: This trail system may soon be reopened. The Land Trust of Huntsville and North Alabama recently purchased a 265-acre tract to complement the 100 acres that it already owned on Chapman Mountain, as well as some property that is owned by Alabama A&M University. The total publicly owned property on Chapman Mountain now exceeds 500 acres. The Land Trust is working on creating a trailhead and parking lot as well as plans for a new trail system on the property. Also, the City of Huntsville has plans to build a connector trail or greenway to Monte Sano State Park for even more possibilities!

Review: Got the info off this site. Drove there. Suited and saddled up only to find a very large "trail closed due to drug activity, severe land destruction, trespassers will be prosecuted, road spikes laid down, etc, etc. Additional signs were posted further in.
