I absolutely loved this trail, and Red Mountain Park in general is a wonderful place to spend the day! Great view of downtown Birmingham!

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

Dangerous at night, high crime neighborhood. Day light provides a easy walk with many other walkers.

I ran here after a lot of rain so I didn’t have a great experience. At one segment you have to cross a creek which left me with some muddy shoes and blisters. Pretty trail, just wish it was longer with an option to bypass the water.

Nice place for a run, just not for me! I’m not into road running but if you are it will not disappoint!

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 look out was not very good. But on the way up there is a swinging gate bridge that was fun and a tree house look out that you could get a view of the city.
