“A short ride among rockets, helicopters, and airplanes.”— Zack Butler
After crossing the road, the trail meanders through the hilly field, occasionally passing between scattered trees before coming back to the street. The trail then runs along Governors House Drive and Bob Wallace Avenue (use the sidewalk along Bob Wallace Avenue) for a short distance and turns off of Bob Wallace Avenue on the other side of the creek next to a utility building. It then meanders through another wooded area before crossing another street.
The trail continues across the street through more wooded space before coming back to the power line easement. It curves through the power line easement before going back into the woods behind the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. This is the longest continuous section of wooded singletrack on this trail. It loops around and comes back out to the power line easement, and back to the road.
Take a left on the road and cross the bridge. After crossing the bridge, go behind the picnic area on the right (there is a gate on the road). Continue around the picnic area and the pond through the woods. There are several trail options here, but you need to get to the gravel road around the pond somehow. This area may be improved in the future. Once you get to the gravel road, continue on around the pond and take a left at the fence to get back to the parking lot.
