  • The hiking wasn't particularly good and the trail signs were terrible (no marked distances, the trail names are too complicated, and the ways the "trails" are designated is not user-friendly). We didn...  read more »
  • Red Mountain is impressive for the visionary collaboration that brought it into being. It's a local park built by local interests that feels like a really good state park. Good signage, markers, maps....  read more »

  • 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.
  • My husband and I did the Play for a Day Combination Package, for $100 per person.. Sure it was fun, but waiting for everyone else killed it. We ended up doing every activity with a group of people and it was horrible. You would think for $200 you could get a private session for all the activities. So for the Mega Zip we ended up waiting 30 mins, bc the group we were supposed to go with was running late.... So we pretty much wasted a few hours in the entire day just waiting for people.. We started at 10 am, and got done at 3:45 pm... So if you plan to do all activities, give yourself the entire day bc you wont be the only one.. I suggest Adventure Park At Grants Mill, if you really want rope course to yourself and a 500 ft zipline in the end. At least you will go at your own pace and not on their schedule.
  • This is a great place for any outdoor enthusiast. From difficult trails to beautiful sites overlooking the city, all with great historical significance to Birmingham. Free to hike, and they nice paid adventures for all ages.
  • Looking for good trails to run... Found this place... Very well maintained, nice variety of trails, happening, with enough distance to make it worth a drive. Truly a gem.
  • I did the zip line here and had a blast! The tour guides made sure I felt safe the whole time and had a great sense of humor. I went here on a date and had a great time!
