Overlooking Downtown Huntsville, Monte Sano is one of the premier destinations for outdoor activities in the Southeast.
Anchoring the district is Monte Sano State Park which offers panoramic views of Downtown Huntsville. Enjoy the over 14 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails and an 18-hole disc golf course. If it’s a rustic chic weekend stay you’re after, visit the Monte Sano State Park Cabins or Campgrounds.
Monte Sano is much more than a single state park. Indeed, the Land Trust of North Alabama offers over 25 miles of urban hiking and biking trails throughout the mountain. The trails are so unique and interesting that signature races such as Mountain Mist call Monte Sano home.
And, when it comes to interesting events, few areas offer incredible options like Three Caves and its annual line-up of concerts and special events like the Moondance and the Haunt or Burritt on the Mountain – a mountainside destination for all ages that includes some of Alabama's best views at Baron Bluff.
For those that want to live near the great outdoors, Monte Sano offers everything from city-view retreats to eclectic cottages on the mountain. Plus, the eclectic Little Green Store serves as a centerpiece for arts, wine, and other collectibles.
From hiking and biking to concerts and gatherings, Monte Sano offers a beautiful overlook of the city center for businesses, residences, and special events.
