Trail through historic Red Mountain Park that leads past old mining buildings and mine shafts to an overlook of Birmingham. Don't forget to stop by the treehouse along the trail near the overlook.

Great hike with well maintained trails which become more challenging as you near the top. The reward for reaching the top is a wonderful view of the Birmingham skyline.

Great little hike - short enough to be good for kids. You also pass by a small treehouse (off the trail near the old miner's bath house) and a large treehouse with a rope bridge near the overlook. Great views. Pretty even in terms of elevation - nothing really steep. Beautiful overlook of Birmingham at the end of the trail.
