Mountain Biking

Talk to our friends at Huntsville Area Mountain Bike Riders (HAMR) for more information about group rides, trail days, and activities just for fat-tire enthusiasts and competitors alike. A small sampling of what the Huntsville area has to offer MTB riders is below:

Popular Huntsville MTB Trails

  • Family Biking Trail: ~4.9 mile long single track on top on the mountain.
  • Gravel road: ~1.5 mile out and back. You can even continue past the gravel on flat double track to the overlook at O'Shaugnessee Point.
  • Wet Trails: Please try to avoid riding on Monte Sano when the trails are wet. The amount of damage done when riding in wet conditions is tremendous compared to dry trails. In wet conditions, please ride at Colonial Hills or  the gravel roads at Wheeler Wild Life Refuge.
Hayes Nature Preserve: Miles of flat smooth dirt trails including board walks near Hampton Cove and the Flint River.

Wheeler Wildlife Refuge: Many miles of dirt roads along the Tennessee River and running through Wheeler Wild Life Refuge. Located off of Jolly B Rd. at the end of County Line Rd. on the border of Limestone and Madison counties. Dirt parking lot is about a mile down on the gravel section of Jolly B. Watch for closed gates, just go around them. NOTE: Hunting is allowed on the Refuge.

Wade Mountain Preserve and Trails: Approximately 11 miles of trails on a combination of Land Trust and private land and TVA easements. The trails are moderately technical single-track that loop around the west and south sides of Wade Mountain. View the Land Trust Maps for more information.
