Runner Notes

This is a rocky trail that also collects water quite easily.

Description

Devil's Racetrack runs 1.6 miles from the Land Trust Parking on Spragins Hollow Road to a large group of limestone boulders known as the Devil's Racetrack. This natural open area offers a great view of the hills north of Huntsville.

From start to finish, the trail ascends only 200 feet with the most aggressive climb from 0.6 to 1.10 miles on the trail. This is where you reach the Devil's Racetrack, a short loop that runs around large grouping of limestone rocks. The loop is just less than 0.5 miles long and puts you back to the trail.
