Huntsville has an impressive number of greenways within the city limits — many of which have been recently created — and another greenway project is in the works now, but the Land Trust of North Alabama is seeking some assistance to get the Tollgate Greenway created.
Here’s how you can help:
The proposed new greenway at Monte Sano will create a paved, multi-use greenway following a segment of the historic Toll Gate Road on Monte Sano. The greenway will extend from the Land Trust of North Alabama’s Bankhead Trailhead parking lot through Monte Sano Nature Preserve to the old Bankhead Parkway within Monte Sano State Park.
This new path will provide pedestrians and bikers a safe, scenic route to travel on the western slope of the mountain.
How you can help
Thus far, the City of Huntsville has pledged $500,000 toward the project. But that leaves another $500,000 needed to complete the project.
The Land Trust of North Alabama is asking the public to help match the city’s pledge so that the Tollgate Greenway can become a reality. To donate, visit the Land Trust’s website donation page.
