This one has some very challenging trails. It was difficult for me , I am not in the best physical condition however, I loved it! A favorite.

Walked this trail with my 16 year old son...the quarry was a nice reward. The trail is not too difficult but there are plenty of ways to go off trail and make it harder. Very clean, free from trash.

Ruffner is really nice area, and is well marked.

The map on the app looks like a combination of a lot of separate trails...no worries, as they are all good.

I will tell you: the ridge and valley trail is not a quaint stroll in the woods. If you aren't in at least moderate shape, save this one for later.

Ruffner Mtn. Has a lot of great trails, and it is hard to believe you are in the middle of a 1.1 million person metro area when you are on them.

The quarry trail isn't difficult, but there are a lot of nooks and crannies to explore once there (the quarry). Be forewarned: you will wondered why every post-apocalyptic movie isn't shot in BHAM while on the quarry floor.

This is a sweet trail. Be careful on the back side of the quarry if you go that way.

If you truly want to spend the day immersed in nature and feel like your alone amongst the trees Ruffner is the place to go!

The trails are well marked and modern. We will come back again. We did the white and orange trail. It takes 3 miles for both trail.

Lizard Loop is a fairly level 1 mile loop. Great canopy of trees and plants. Gravel trail in parts but narrows to a dirt path that feels more secluded.

This park is the best kept hiking secret in Birmingham. In fact, will people stop giving this five stars so it stays lightly trafficked? Thanks!

pretty okay hike, better views when it's all green

We had a great time. Challenging at times. Good views.

Staff was super awesome :)

Awesome trails and staff !!

Great trail

This was great place!!

Great trail for a day hike. Easy and enjoyable. Would go again. Still a lot left to explore on the trail. Safe and not super busy.

Took Ridge & Valley trail... continous inclines and declines that are very challenging on legs . Decided to take Crusher trail along the way.

FYI....this is not a easy trail if you're just a beginner hiker. The hike back to the top is a straight incline of over a mile with twists and turns.
