Red Mountain Park is a nonprofit organization that is becoming an urban mega park, consisting of 1,500 wooded acres located in Birmingham, 3 miles west of I-65 (Lakeshore Parkway Exit #255). Visitors currently enjoy 15 miles of walking, hiking and mountain biking trails, Remy’s Dog Park and 4 unique outdoor adventures: the Vulcan Materials Zip Trip (a 1 ½-hour zip line adventure), the Hugh Kaul Beanstalk Forest (20 unique rope and cable treetop challenges), the 80-foot climbing/rappelling Kaul Adventure Tower and the 1,000 foot Mega Zip. Beautiful destination sites—the historic ‘Redding Hoist House,’ three Treehouse views (Haskell Hideaway, Riley’s Roost, & Rushing Rendezvous) and glimpses of iron ore mine entrances—both surprise and delight Park guests.
Phase one is complete, but this current phase is where we do some heavy lifting, and we need your support.
Upon completion of Phase 2 Development in 2016, the Park will deliver trails totaling 20 miles, picnic pavilions, an event facility, two formal entries and formal parking, and the Robert R. Meyer Activity Center.
