Nestled between Jones Valley and the Flint River Valley is Green Mountain, a nature lover's paradise within the City Limits of Huntsville, AL. This private oasis offers lush green woodlands, scenic limestone bluffs, miles of nature trails, majestic mountain views, and convenience.
There are hundreds of acres of Land Trust of North Alabama property on the north and south ends of Green Mountain, preserving these pristine wetlands, bluff views and dense forests for future generations. Alum Hollow was recently acquired by the Land Trust and includes many pristine trails featuring large outcroppings and waterfalls, and connect up to neighboring Oak Bluff and Buzzard Falls Trails.
Several newly developed residential communities on Green Mountain are designed to complement the landscape and natural beauty of the mountain. Oak Bluff on Green Mountain features home sites along the scenic bluff for new homes and embraces the surrounding natural amenities. Realizing the need for more green space and the preservation of trees, the developers have taken special care to protect the mountain for future generations. However, Green Mountain has much more to offer than unique residential living. The Madison County Nature Trail is a beautiful seventy-two acre park including Skye Lake with a scenic covered bridge, two miles of walking trails, picnic areas, and wild life. The Nature Trail is a favorite of locals, and also a very popular setting for romantic weddings on top of Green Mountain. Green Mountain has an active community of residents who are heavily involved in protecting and preserving our unique way of life on the mountain. The Green Mountain Civic League is one avenue for such community involvement. Take a drive up to Green Mountain, and you will see what you have been missing. It offers a different way of life, with all the convenience of a prime south Huntsville location. All of Green Mountain is located in Huntsville’s finest school system, which includes Grissom High, and Mountain Gap Elementary and Middle Schools.
