Monte Sano State Park is located, near Huntsville, in northeast Alabama. In Spanish, Monte Sano means “Mountain of Health.” In the late 1800s, visitors from across the United States came for “the season” to experience and enjoy Monte Sano’s fresh air, spectacular views and mineral springs.
Today in the park they have many activities that bring people to the park. Hiking and Biking trails, Camping and Cabins, History and fun new activities abound. On your visit to the park you will need to pay an entrance fee and you may want to stop by the camp store and pick up a map before you head to the trail head parking lot.

From the Trail head parking lot head South along the South Plateau Trail to the split and go to the right. Cross over the intersection of the Fire Tower Trail and keep going past the third bridge. Now go on past the next shelter on the left side of the trail. After passing the 1 mile marker you will go on down the SPT to the next intersection of the Fire Trail, keep going down the SPT past the next shelter. On down the trail, look for a side trail on the left (dry or bypass or High road). At that intersection turn left, from on the side trail, and go 10 paces into the woods to a large tree with a young friend, back side under duff. (HT23)

You have made it here and you have a choice to go on or head back to your car.
