National Rail Trail Magazine features Red Mountain Park


The development of Birmingham's Red Mountain Park is featured in the summer issue of Rails to Trails, a national publication of the Rail-To-Trails Conservancy.
Red Mountain Park has over 10 miles of trail now and is on the verge of adding more. A good portion of that trail system follows the beds of the railroads that once transported iron ore from the mountainside mines to the furnaces in the valley.
