trail locations for Birmingham, Alabama

Love this place, but there has been more and more trash being left behind. I was take a trash bag and gather up trash from the trail. They have trash cans at the entrance and down by the creek.

Love this place and they have many trails to hike. Beautiful!!

Great! But as another guy below my review says, you WILL get lost easily here. Their trail color system is not clearly marked nor used frequently enough along the trail. My 3.2 jaunt turned into a 6.2 slog through the Alabama 'Outback'.
The first half I loved Got to see a very cool double waterfall and several deer along trail.
Would do again.

Wonderful place. Surprise at mine #14, a vent hole from the mine blows out cold air!!

A mix of gravel, asphalt and dirt trails. My biggest complaint is that my shoes got soaking wet during an unavoidable creek crossing. Generally I stray away from blisters. Nice stretch through the woods but pretty crowded and I ended up crossing roads in a neighborhood. Some pretty areas but not well marked and not what I expected.

This is one of my favorite hikes in the city! Ruffner is Birmingham's best kept secret! This trail offers great views and is a great walk!

had so much fun!!

The trail was beautiful and well kept; however, there were no benches along the route, and on a hot day like today, a bench would have been nice. A bathroom facility at the trailhead would have been nice as well.

Favorite place for running in the area. There are not many people around because it is fairly hilly. the trails are fun and very different from one another.

Fun place to boulder. For trail running, expect to get lost your first time out. Moss Rock is a beautiful place and easily accessible. Some creek crossings are necessary to access a few of the trails.
