Runner Notes

This is a very flat trail with minimal roots to trip on and no other obstacles.

Description

The West Bluff Trail serves as a deviation from the Bill and Marion Certain Trail. Once you reach the top of Green Mountain via the Bill and Marion Certain Trail you are soon given an opportunity to either choose the route to the west or stay on the current route to the east.

Choosing the west route puts you on West Bluff trail which simply parallels the Bill and Marion Certain Trail through the power line cuts and eventually meets back up with it after about one mile.

Of course, you'll wanna stop at the power line cuts for a great view of South Huntsville.
