What To See & Do

Moss Rock Preserve

Outdoor Recreation Site in Hoover

A perfect balance of nature and community, Moss Rock Preserve is a beautiful 250-acre nature preserve abundant with trees and plants, rock outcroppings, streams, waterfalls, wildlife and other unique natural features. Currently Moss Rock Preserve is home to four rare species of plants and a rare variant of Little River Canyon Sandstone Glade - one of only 35 occurrences known around the world! Moss Rock Preserve's Boulder Field is a favorite among rock climbers. With numerous technical formations, these boulders appeal to climbers of all skill levels. The City of Hoover is fortunate that these and other natural features exist in Moss Rock. As such, Moss Rock Preserve has been dedicated as a nature preserve in order to insure its long-term survivability. Nearly 10 miles of hiking footpaths have been constructed within Moss Rock Preserve. These paths allow visitors and nature enthusiasts to witness the beauty of Moss Rock up close and personal. Please do your part to keep Moss Rock scenic and wild for all generations to enjoy.
