Description

Rock Bluff trails runs around Burritt on the mountain and features a large concrete cross almost directly in the middle of the trail. Check out this Huntsville Outdoors article for some historical info.

Rock Bluff Trail can be accessed in four places: One from the Burritt Events Center on the identically named Rock Bluff trail, another from Oak Tree Trail, and the last two are directly off of Burritt Drive. Of the two Burritt drive entrances the 2nd one from Monte Sano Blvd has a parking lot with only four parking spots.

The trail itself is very easy and can be used people all levels of fitness. The trail features a boardwalk and handrails so it's fun for all ages. From the small parking lot, it is a relatively flat with only a slight incline at the end.
