Designed for those with developmental differences such as low vision and hearing, the Butler Snow Sensory Trail allows both children and adults to explore their curiosity for our natural world.
This trail is .14 miles long and located near the entrance of the Park along the BMRR South Trail. The Butler Snow Sensory Trail includes 14 activities, a comfort zone, a pergola with swinging benches and sensory bags that will be available for check out at the Park’s Welcome Station. The bags contain items such as ear plugs, sunglasses and fidget toys. For our friends who use wheelchairs, the sensory trail was designed to be accessed with the Park’s off-road Nomad wheelchair, available by reservation, at (205) 913-7899, at no cost. Red Mountain Park is excited to take this first step toward welcoming all of our community and becoming a more inclusive Park! Please contact Rachel Ahrnsen to give us your feedback on the trail.
The generous funding that mas made the Sensory Trail possible comes from the Butler Snow Foundation.
We also thank the many volunteers who offered their time and talent on the trail.
