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.

First hike, it was a very physical one. Beautiful views from the overlook. Seemed all up hill both ways lol.

There's nothing quite like a true nature hike in the middle of a city. The sunset from the quarry is incredible.

The perfect loop to do in 2 hours with a dog! We loved the view of Birmingham and the incredible quarry. Lots of friendly hikers were enjoying the beautiful fall Sunday, but the trail never seemed crowded.
