Limestone Trail which is located in Elkmont, AL only minutes from Huntsville and is part of the Rails to Trails Conservancy.  Currently, Limestone Trail starts in Elkmont, AL near the old train depot and heads south for approx. 3.3 miles.  This trail runs thru the countryside and is fairly quiet which offers a perfect opportunity for thinking, hiking, biking, running, and horseback riding.  Most of the path is surrounded on both sides by a trees and creeping vines, with several species of wildflowers littering the side of the trail.  Along the trail off to the right side of the trail, there is a view of a valley with a pond and a meandering stream and a great hill for sliding.  On the left side of the trail there is the sign that recreates a vision of Battle of Sulphur Creek Trestle.
