Hike the Land Trust Challenge: Wade Mountain – Spragins Hollow
August 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
(Moderate / 3 hours / 5 miles) Follow our series of guided hikes throughout the entire year as we cover all of the Land Trust’s public trails! We’ll start with the easiest routes and increase our difficulty and distance along the way. Discover the eastern side of Wade Mountain Nature Preserve all in one morning. This hike starts along Piney Loop, which is a mostly flat, easy stroll through the pines as the name suggests. From there begin the hike up Devil’s Racetrack. Interesting rocks and beautiful trees line the way up the mountain leading you to the top. There you’ll enjoy views of north Huntsville and an interesting sandy terrain that’s different from the area around it. Take a different route down the mountain on Shovelton, Harris, and Rockwall Trails before returning to Devil’s Racetrack for the final stretch back towards the trailhead.
Location: Wade Mountain Nature Preserve (Spragins Hollow) – 10130 Spragins Hollow Rd NW, Huntsville, AL 3581
