What To See & Do

Red Mountain Park

Outdoor Recreation Site in Birmingham

Red Mountain Park’s 1,200 acre wooded site is located 3 miles west from Birmingham’s I-65 Lakeshore Parkway exit. Visitors enjoy 11 miles of walking, hiking and mountain biking trails, the Red Ore Zip Tour (a 1 ½ hour zip line adventure through the trees) and the Hugh Kaul Beanstalk Forest (a treetop course with 20 unique rope and cable challenges). Beautiful destination sites – the historic ‘Redding Hoist House’, the ‘SkyHy Treehouse’ and glimpses of iron ore mine entrances – both surprise and delight Park guests. Upon completion of Phase 2 Development in 2015, the Park will deliver 30 miles of trails; a 6-acre off-leash dog park; picnic pavilions; playgrounds; and a dedicated bike park.
