This weekend we’ll be celebrating YOU—our Park guests and Members who love and use Red Mountain Park—and we hope you’ll join in the fun!
From 8am-2pm on Saturday, August 24th and 7am-2pm on Sunday, August 25th, join us at the Frankfurt Drive entrance for fun, FREE, family-friendly activities.
You’ll also have an opportunity to deepen your support for the Park you love with a Red Mountain Park Membership, or renew your Membership and enjoy complimentary beverages from our friends with Buffalo Rock!
Here’s the schedule for the weekend’s festivities!
Trail Hike with RMP Ranger: Meet Interim Chief Park Ranger Don Parker and enjoy a leisurely hour-long walk and learn more about the important work our Rangers do each day!
Guided History Hike to Redding Hoist House: Join Park historian Jeff Newman for a 2 ½ mile hike (along flat trails!) to the Redding Hoist House, and learn more about the connection to the Park’s only saft mine and professional baseball in Birmingham!
HOGA: Generously provided by our friends with Earth & Ember Yoga, grab your yoga mat and join certified instructors for yoga under the trees! All levels and skills are welcome.
Giant Lawn Games: Presented by our friends with the 20th Special Forces Group, compete with friends and family on a rock climbing wall, inflatable jousting, strength tests, and more!
I Like Ike! Member Run: This Members-only run will begin at the Redding Hoist and challenge runners and walkers alike along the 2.93 miles of the Ike Maston Trail. Meet former iron ore miner Ike Maston’s daughter as she starts the competition, and see how many times you can travel the full length of the trail throughout the morning! Aid stations and a pizza break will be provided by the Birmingham Ultra Trail Society!
