Red Mountain Park makes playing in the woods fun again.

 

Red Mountain Park has transformed the metro’s green space equation with a 1,200-acre wooded site off of Lakeshore Parkway. Visitors can enjoy 11 miles of walking, hiking, and mountain biking trails; the Red Ore Zip Tour (a 90-minute zip line adventure through the trees); and the Hugh Kaul Beanstalk Forest (a treetop course with 20 unique rope and cable challenges).  The park features beautiful destinations like the historic Redding Hoist House, the SkyHy Treehouse, and glimpses of iron ore mine entrances.

Upon completion of the Phase 2 Development in 2015, Red Mountain Park will feature 21 miles of trails; the six-acre, off-leash Remy’s Dog Park; picnic pavilions; playgrounds; and a dedicated bike park.

    I should be nice and settled in Birmingham by the time those 21-miles of trail are complete. I look forward to enjoying them.
