Red Mountain Park

Red Mountain Park http://redmountainpark.org Visitors enjoy over 16 miles of walking, hiking and mountain biking trails, and the six-acre off-leash Remy’s Dog Park.

Red Mountain Park, a non-profit organization, offers 1,500 wooded acres located in Birmingham, 3 miles west of I-65 (Lakeshore Parkway Exit #255). Beautiful destinations—the historic ‘Hoist House,’ pedestrian Treehouses (Haskell Hideaway, Riley’s Roost, & Rushing Rendezvous) and iron-ore mine entrances—surprise and delight Park guests. Accessible parking is located at our Wenonah Entrance—2019 Ven

ice Road, Birmingham, AL 35211. Support these projects by visiting redmountainpark.org and making a tax-deductible contribution.

The Haskell Hideaway treehouse is open again! We appreciate your patience while we made repairs.

Santa and Mrs. Claus are coming to town on Saturday, November 18th!

Come to Remy's Dog Park anytime between 9 A.M. and 12 P.M. Saturday, November 18th, no registration necessary, to take your pet's photo. You will check in with an RMP staff member at the dog park entrance and receive a number to designate the order your pic will be taken.

We'll have festive accessories available if your pet would like to dress up. All pets should be on a leash. You and your family are welcome to be in the photo too. And while Santa is pet-friendly, you do not have to have a pet to have your photo taken with Santa!

We will have a professional photographer, and Red Mountain Park will email your photos the week after the event. Hope to see you there!

Due to the current dry conditions and recent lack of rain, a Red Flag/No Burn warning has been issued for our area.

In light of this, tonight's S'mores event at Red Mountain Park has been postponed. We are so grateful to all of our members and hope to reschedule this event once we've had a good rain.

Thank you for understanding and for your continued support of Red Mountain Park. We look forward to the opportunity to gather with you soon!

The Birmingham Ultra Trail Society has partnered with Red Mountain Park to host a Red Mountain Park members-only running event, I Like Ike, on Saturday, October 21st.

Ike Maston, Trail 5, is the most challenging single-track trail at Red Mountain and measures approximately 3 miles from end to end. For this event, the 6-mile round trip counts as one “lap.” For I Like Ike, you’ll have six hours to run as many laps as possible. At the turn-around, a volunteer will mark your bib to show that you made it to the halfway point. When you make it back to the start line, you will mark your completion of the lap on a high tech poster board and decide whether or not to take on another lap. If you have not completed your final lap at the end of six hours, you don’t get partial credit.
The start of the race is at the Hoist House. You will check in and receive your bib at the park entrance on Frankfurt Drive, then walk or slow jog the mile to the Hoist House (warm up!).

Check-in begins at the park entrance at 7 A.M. The run starts at 7:30 A.M. Please register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/i-like-ike-run-tickets-715452296077?aff=oddtdtcreator you plan on participating in this event.

Whether you want to run one lap or five, come join us for a fun day of challenging yourself in the woods!

If you're not currently a Red Mountain Park member and would like to participate in the run, you can learn more about Red Mountain Park membership and become a member at https://redmountainpark.org/membership/

It's happening!
"According to the plan, by adding 19 miles of new trail, we can create a loop that begins with Ruffner Mountain in the east through Railroad Park downtown to Red Mountain Park in the west, connecting the Cities of Birmingham, Fairfield, Homewood and Irondale, along with other cities previously included in the trail system."

🚨 See the map. Loop Ruffner Mountain to Red Mountain Park/High Ore Trail. This is a game-changer. # trails
