Best Hiking Spots in Alabama

Where to find hiking adventure in Alabama's travel destinations

Blessed with some of the most amazing hiking spots, Alabama offers a variety of
hiking trails, from the mountains of Huntsville to the beaches of Gulf Shores.

Alabama is definitely a dream come true for all hikers out there. It is blessed with some of the most amazing hiking spots. There are trails that go to the mountains of Huntsville and the ones spreading all the way to the beaches of Gulf Shores. As you can see, there is something for everybody's taste, and, of course, skill. And, if you are worried about your busy schedule, there is a solution for that too - overnight hikes! Some of these trails are located in state parks, some in forests, some around the waterfalls, and some are even right next to the ocean. Today, we will mention just a few of them that both locals and tourists claim to be the best. If you're interested in hiking and holiday spots for adventure travel in Alabama, keep on reading.

1. Trails of Monte Sano State Park

There are actually 20 different trails in Monte Sano State Park, which is located at the top of Monte Sano Mountain in Huntsville. They are all interconnected, so you can easily switch from one to another, or maybe even check many of them during one day, or one trek. This will give you an opportunity to try out different trails and different skill levels. Trust us, that will be quite an adventure. But, what makes these trails so special? Well, through history, people have been coming here for centuries to cure what ailed them by breathing that fresh air. And, what is more, many of them actually decided to settle in at the foot of the mountain. So, if you want to move across the state to be closer to nature, this could be a great choice.

If you want an adventure, visit some trails of Monte Sano State Park,
which in Spanish means "Mountain of Health".

2. Trails of DeSoto State Park

DeSoto State Park is located in Fort Payne. And, it can easily be said that this is one of the most visited state parks in entire Alabama. It is suitable for people from all walks of life. Kids join camps, families rent cabins, the adventurous ones go for backpacking and trying out those dangerous hiking trails, and adrenalin junkies do extreme sports. As you can see, there is something for everybody here. But, when it comes to trails and hiking spots, DeSoto does not disappoint either. There are around 24 trails, for beginners and for advanced hikers. The best time to visit a hiking spot or two is definitely in the spring as you will be able to experience an amazing view of the canyon, waterfalls at their prime, and the smell of azaleas and rhododendron which are then in bloom. If you like what you hear, join the bandwagon.

You will find many popular treks in Alabama, one of them being the Falls Loop trail,
located near Double Springs in Alabama.

3. Trails of Cheaha State Park

As mentioned again, if you want to be closer to nature and be able to enjoy its wonders every single day, you can easily call Park Moving and move to Alabama. However, if that is not possible, you can at least have an outdoorsy vacation once or twice a year. And, Cheaha State Park is the perfect place for that! There you can rent a cabin, and besides all the trails, you will also be able to enjoy the spectacular Talladega National Forest. Be sure that when hiking and exploring this region, you will encounter some of the most mesmerizing forest and mountain views, as well as waterfalls and wildlife.

4. Trails of the Lake Guntersville

If you decide to try these trails and hiking spots, you will be able to enjoy not only the town of Guntersville and its state park but also its amazing lake. Again, this is one of those places where you can participate in multiple adventures. There are approximately 36 miles of trails that range in their length and difficulty. Of course, just like with the other hiking spots, the trails here are all interconnected so you can create your own track, suitable to your needs and skills. Be sure to check out the Old Still Path and Moonshine Trail, two of the most amazing trails, visited often by both tourists and locals. And, when you get tired of hiking, you can enjoy the crystal clear lake and the beautiful town of Guntersville. So, if you want the ‘full-package’, visit Guntersville, and you will see why holidays reduce stress and make you forget about your problems.

The town of Guntersville features an amazing lake of the same name,
where you can take part in multiple adventures.

5. Trails of Oak Mountain

The last but certainly not the least place to visit on our list of the best hiking spots in Alabama is the Oak Mountain. It is located in Pelham and for decades, it has been one of the favorite places of thousands and thousands of hikers and bikers. There are actually two trails here that connect to one another. But, that does not mean that your hiking ability is limited. When these two trails are connected, you get around a 13-mile long trek. Once you start climbing the mountain, besides the mesmerizing nature, you will also be able to see numerous little lakes, streams, and rocky slopes. Moreover, if you like camping and picnicking, again, you are in the right place. Many people who come here are fully equipped for a nice overnighter.
