The trail is now complete from Vulcan Park to Green Springs Highway. The path is easy and flat, but the run up Red Mountain to the trail justifies the moderate rating. (There is a parking lot at the trail.). The view of Birmingham justifies the fourth star. Nice addition to the Red Rock Trail System!

Trail is currently closed for construction. I had to give a star to comment so don't have a rating yet!

Nice trail to walk, run, or bike, decent views of city. This is fully paved so "trail" is subjective. This trail is also totally flat so I'm not sure why it's ranked as moderate.

I didn't really like this trail. It was too short. The parking space is too small. People blocking people in. It was just too crowded.
I liked the view of the city, the vulcan, the wbrc sign. That's about it.

Good trail. Always bring someone with you. It's not the safest area.
