Pine Torch Trail is amazing. I have heard many people compare it to Tsali. As of October 08 the three loops are in amazing condition, the only draw back is the sand that appears to be brought in to stop the mukkiness. The descents are really fast and frequent with lots of switch backs that usually lead into a climb. If you live in the Huntsville/Madison area it is an excellent alternative to Monte Sano. Great drive from Madison as well.

Customer Service

We rode counter clockwise and I think it is faster if you want more descending sections.

Monte Sano, especially McKay Hollow if you are up for technical, rocky descents.

Obviously because this is an ATV trail it is fairly wide. While this isn't the most ideal type of trail for riders, it is really hard-packed and you can work up some pretty good speed on it, especially if you use the berms to your advantage. One word of caution, don't go riding any time when it has rained within the last day or two, it is slicker than owl's snot when it's wet... way too sloppy to be worth it. But overall, go during the week to avoid the ATVs, get out on the trail and let the hammer down and crank out some good training miles. The climbs are good enough to make you put in some effort and the descents are usually rolling and just plain fun. Keep your eyes out for wildlife, I've seen snakes, deer, turtles, armadillos, and other little critters.

Customer Service

On the weekends go clockwise, most of the ATVs run counterclockwise, but during the week there's usually no one out there and you can run whichever way you want. It's fun to make a figure 8 out of the two trails to make a longer route.
