Upcoming Hike- Goat Trail

Jan. 23- Goat Trail, Monte Sano State Park, Huntsville, Alabama, 5 miles Moderate. This hike will include panoramic views of the Tennessee Valley, steep rock outcroppings and an historic fire tower. The hike is mainly on the Goat Trail, but includes the Sinks and South Plateau Loop Trails. The trails are in good condition, but rocky and uneven in places. There will be an initial elevation loss of 300+ feet in about ½ mile and a similar gain in about 1 ½ miles. Please note that there will be a $3 ($1-62 yrs+) per person fee to get into the park. After our hike we will have lunch at a local restaurant. We will leave from the Murfreesboro Sam’s Club overflow parking lot next to Hardees at 8:00 AM. Distance from Sam’s Club to Monte Sano State Park is about 90 miles. For more information and to register for the hike, please contact Bob Goodwin at or 256-564-8417.

We are sorry we did not get to join this hike. We were at the advertised place at the advertised time (ACTUALLY EARLY AND STAYED LATE) only to find out several hours after the fact that the car pool left from a different location, etc. What a serious break down in communication! I hope steps will be taken to prevent this type of thing from happening again.
