Trailhead signs link downtown hikers, bikers walkers and joggers to Land Trust

City of Huntsville FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 14, 2014
(Huntsville, AL) - New residents and visitors are pleasantly surprised to see Huntsville's lush green mountains, streams and hiking trails located within minutes of the City's urban center. To help guide people to these amenities, the City of Huntsville is installing about one dozen trailhead signs from the Von Braun Center to the entrance of the Monte Sano trailhead at Three Caves. From there, users can enjoy more than 30 miles of trails throughout the Land Trust, Monte Sano State Park and the Burritt Museum.

"Chad Emerson with Downtown Huntsville Inc., came to us with this idea after hearing from the hoteliers that guests were interested in accessing our trail system," said Mayor Tommy Battle. "We thought it was a good idea, and it fit within our Healthy Huntsville goals to get people outdoors and moving around."

The City's Planning Department and Traffic Engineering Department worked with DHI to create about one dozen signs and mark a route beginning at the corner of Williams and Monroe and ending at the Three Caves trailhead.

"We are excited about this project," said Emerson. "The decorative signage connects guests living, working, staying, and playing in Downtown Huntsville and Big Spring Park to the many miles of hiking and biking trails just minutes from the city center."
