The history of Birmingham’s Red Mountain is a story of rare opportunity, remarkable risk and back-breaking toil. It is the unique and compelling story of a Southern city that did not exist during the Civil War—but which grew as if by magic in the decades just after, exemplifying the transition of America’s economic base from agrarian to industrial. Red Mountain Park is a new and growing place for adventure. Currently offering 11 miles of hiking and biking trails, the Red Ore Zip Tour, Hugh Kaul Beanstalk Forest, Historic iron ore mining sites, SkyHy Tree House and two scenic overlooks— Grace’s Gap Overlook and Ishkooda Overlook. The centerpiece of Red Mountain Park is its extensive, interconnected trail system, its juxtaposition of natural features with historic mining structures. As it continues to develop, Red Mountain Park will incorporate new ideas and opportunities for added facilities and attractions.
