Monte Sano State Park Huntsville Alabama

Monte Sano State Park Huntsville Alabama

In many of my blog posts I mention Monte Sano State Park and it's convenient location to neighborhoods in and around Madison and Huntsville Alabama.  The following features photos of the park and the many things to do there.

Monte Sano in Spanish means "Mountain of Health" and Monte Sano State park is a 2,400 acre park rising 1600 feet above sea level on Monte Sano Mountain.  The park provides 14 miles of hiking & biking trails.  Bird watching is also popular on the mountain.

At the entrance to Monte Sano State Park is the guard booth.  Occasionally there is no one there and the Honor Box collects the minimal fees.  On my weekday visit it cost $2 per person.  The park was built in the late 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps established by Franklin D. Roosevelt.  The cabins built for vacationers are still used today.

Below left is the Monte Sano Lodge where you can schedule your special event.  Surrounded in a mountain setting it's the perfect spot for your wedding or business meeting complete with Internet connectivity.  The right photo is the view from behind the lodge.

Playground and an open air amphitheater near the lodge.

Below are stone cabins built in the arts and crafts style that were popular then and today.  2 cabins are dog friendly and there is a $15/dog per night fee.  For rental and reservation information call 256 534-6589.  For those who like to camp, there are improved and primitive camp sites available.
