From Our Editors

Though the last-remaining ore mine on its slope closed more than a generation ago, Red Mountain remains embedded in Birmingham's DNA. In 2007, U.S. Steel made one of the largest corporate land donations in U.S. history when it sold more than 1,200 acres of the mountain's land to the Red Mountain Park and Recreational Area Commission at a sizable discount.

That land has since become the 1,500-acre Red Mountain Park, which stretches along the mountain's ridges and hollows between the cities of Homewood and Bessemer. Here, visitors find an ever-growing hub of activities, highlighted by 14 miles of walking, hiking, and mountain biking trails. Adventurers can also conquer a ropes course with 20 unique challenges, rappel down an 80-foot rock-climbing tower, zoom through the air during 90-minute zip-line tours, or reach up to 30 mph on the 1,000-foot Mega Zip. Red Mountain Park, a nonprofit organization, even boasts a six-acre dog park so visitors can bring pooches along instead of leaving them home to binge-watch Lassie. Destination sites including the historic Redding Hoist House, three Treehouse views, and glimpses of iron ore mine entrances surprise and delight guests, and development ending in 2016 will add 20 miles of trails, picnic pavilions, an event facility, a formal entry and parking, and the Robert R. Meyer Activity Center.
