I am new to the Huntsville area(Owens Cross Roads) and am looking for good day hikes and 2-3 day hikes. Any suggestions? Also looking for the names of some good outfitters in the area. I go to Nashville now and then to see the sights so outfitters up there would be appreciated also. I have been to Alabama Outdoors in Jones Valley but the kids in there seem more interested in selling overpriced TNF fleece to the "high school honeys" than in helping an overweight middle-aged guy looking to buy or talk about real hiking/backpacking gear!!! Also, are there any hiking clubs in the Huntsville area? I am a member of the North Alabama Land Trust.
Thanks to all
