  • This park is great for doing some easy to moderate hiking. There are several trails to choose from with some cool mines to see along the way. It's a great place to bring dogs. They do have small zip l...  more »

  • Church group of six (ages 10 to 66) spent a fun morning experiencing the Vulcan Zipline at Red Mountain Park. It was an awesome adventure for all. Expect a short hike through woods to the Zipline Base...  more »

  • Absolutely love this park. My first time coming was this past weekend and we came up from Mobile. We came to Zip line because I had been seeing this was an Adventure Park. There is hiking, biking and even a dog park. The first day we hiked, there is a lot to see being an old mining establishment. All kinds of structures and things to see we ended up doing 14.6 miles. It's a beautiful hike so we just kept going and enjoyed it, there is so much to see the park itself is very well maintained and marked. The adventure Park is awesome has an adventure course and a climbing tower. Now for the Zip Lining, so of the most fun I've had, you get two jumps and it's pretty fast but you zip through trees and are pretty high up. Definitely recommend doing this. I wanna go back soon and do some more. You can even jump at night which would be really cool to do. Wish there were more stars because I would rate this a lot higher than a 5.
  • Very large but on a Tuesday, it was almost all to ourselves. Which was nice. Plenty of places/trails to walk and a few zip lines, with additional activities-but didn't appeal to us. Even a little dog park. At the park entry there was someone to give info if we needed and maps. Not real pretty though.
  • Awesome place! Great hiking trails, wonderful dog park area, and fun things like a zip line! Took my dog here for the park and hiking - we both loved it!
  • Great park. Plenty of trails with varying difficulty and plenty of history to go along with it. The parks also has zip lining, segway tours, and all kinds of other adventures. Every time I go, I always end up spending at least half of my day there.
  • Went today with my wife and we had a great time. Did both the Vulcan Materials zip and the Mega zip. The staff are extremely nice and we'll trained. We are coming back soon for another event.
