Chapman Mountain Preserve in Huntsville, Alabama was recently opened to the public in April 2018. Chapman Mountain Preserve is a tract of land just off of highway
72 that was purchased a few years ago by the Land Trust of North Alabama. It currently has three miles of hiking trails with more trails coming in the future. The preserve will
eventually have primitive camping and disc golf in the future as well.
The trail head is located in the parking area
To access the trail head:
The trails are fairly easy.
Hiking the Trail:
You can start on any of the trails that you want and hike them all, giving you a three mile round trip. Eventually the preserve will have several more miles of trails.
Scenic Alabama woodlands, plenty of pine trees, and a small stream.
The trails are new and well maintained
There is a porta potty on the site. Eventually the preserve will have disc golf and primitive camping in the future (I think, you can contact the Land Trust of North Alabama for more information).
