  • Don't see the appeal. Every path was covered with large rock gravel that was hard to walk on. My feet were hurting after a few yards or so. It is very very crowded and lots of dogs. The landscape, tre...  more »
  • There are so many trails and historical artifacts here. There is a trail that takes you overlooking the city (kind of). It's still a nice view. Also, they have ziplining and a dog park. So cool!  more »

  • Support this park! It's a great addition to the Birmingham metro hiking scene. They have other attractions that I can't personally speak to, but the trails are well maintained and good for an easy and accessible to just about anyone hike. No major obstacles or true climbs to make, at least on the several trails we have been on.
  • There are many trails to choose from. It's great for biking, walking the dogs, or even picnicking.
  • Great park for biking, dogs, hiking, and just getting out in the woods. Well cared for and good variety of trails. Mountain biking is not as in-depth as at Oak Mountain, but for being close to the city it has enough interesting trails to be well worth it.
  • The park has lots of fun activities for everyone who wants to spend some time outdoors. They have a mountain biking trail, hiking trails, zipline courses, obstacle course and lot more. They are also close to the city so you can go there for a quick hike even during your lunch break.
  • Red Mountain, a few miles south of Birmingham, was the premier iron ore source for the hungry furnaces of the Magic City. Today nature and overgrown mine ruins are the beautiful backdrop for this park planned and built for easy access and entertainment. The park features about 12 miles of well maintained trails, zip lines, tree top adventures, picnic areas, tree houses, mining ruins, outlooks, goats, and a big, fenced-in dog park separated into 3 areas for dogs with an issue, small dogs, and big dogs > 40 lb. You find plenty of destinations to define a turning point and to keep children motivated. The wide trails allow peaceful coexistence of hikers, runners, dog walkers, and bicyclists.
