At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It’s day 11 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO Giveaway, featuring Big Spring Park in Huntsville, AL.

Walk the Historic Big Spring Park Trail in Huntsville, AL

Today, we’re taking a look at the beautiful Big Spring Park right in the heart of Huntsville, Alabama. In fact, the fertility of Big Spring Park is largely responsible for the establishment of Huntsville.

Click and drag in this 360-degree video from Big Spring Park, complete with poolside Koi fish:





First settled over 200 years ago by John Hunt, Big Spring has been preserved by the city and celebrated as the jewel of downtown Huntsville.

Big Spring Park’s history reminds us of how close simple explorations can be, and that we should actively seek out daily adventures.

Walk the Big Spring Park Trail that weaves its way between the cherry trees, snap a photo on the famous red bridge, and spend a moment with the ducks and Koi fish.

The daily #GetOutAndGO Giveaway prize is on Saris’ Facebook page. They’re giving away a SuperClamp Bike Rack to celebrate Huntsville!

Do you live in Huntsville or are you planning a visit soon? If so, walking down the scenic Big Spring Park Trail is a must-do.

Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
