      The trails in Lake Guntersville State Park traverse moderate to difficult terrain and cover over 36 miles of park property. They are multi-use trails, serving as hiking, biking and horse trails. The trails are varied with some following alongside the banks of the Tennessee River, others leading to seasonal waterfalls and wildflowers, and some peaking your interest just by their name alone such as the Old Still Path and the Moonshine Trail.

      Spiderwort and Mountain Laurel are among many species of plants to bloom in Spring and Summer in Lake Guntersville State Park.

      The trails differ in length from .5 miles to 3.5 miles yet connect with one another to form a loop of trails that add up to 36 miles. Enjoy a short 30 minute hike, guided Saturday morning interpretive hikes, or pack a picnic lunch and head out for a day exploring the ridges, waterfalls and river in beautiful Lake Guntersville State Park.

      Where mentioned, the "park road" is the loop of roads located off Highway 227 at the entrance to the park that leads to the cottages, campground, chalets, golf course and Lodge.
