Beautiful destination sites – the historic ‘Redding Hoist House’, three Treehouse views(SkyHy Treehouse, Riley’s Roost Treehouse, & Rushing Rendezvous Treehouse) and glimpses of iron ore mine entrances – both surprise and delight Park guests. Upon completion of Phase 2 Development in 2016, the Park will deliver even more trails; picnic pavilions and an event facility; formal entry and parking; and an adventure activity center. www.redmountainpark.org

      Article: Revisiting Red Mountain Park: A huge park opens, but there’s more in store

      Three years ago, while writing for another weekly paper in Birmingham, I wrote a cover story called “A Peek Through the Privet.” It offered a preview of Red Mountain Park, then in early stages of development, and it opened like this: It has been 47 years since there’s been an active iron ore mine on Red Mountain, and in that time the Japanese privet has grown thick. When given time and a temperate Southern climate, the shrub — considered an invasive species — grows quite large. Together, the privet and the kudzu (that other Japanese plant plague) have nearly encased in a foliage veneer the mine entrances, rail beds and other remnants of a century of mining on the mountain. It has now been 50 years since there was mining on Red Mountain, but thanks to work by Red Mountain Park staff and loads of volunteer work by Friends of Red Mountain Park and others, much of the privet has been trimmed back and some of the park’s history — which, more than anything else, is also Birmingham’s history — has been laid bare.

      Red Mountain Park is preparing to open more than 10 miles of unpaved trail that crisscrosses the ridges and valleys of the eastern half of the park property. The park's executive director, David Dionne, said no date has been set but he hopes to start allowing public access to the property by late fall or winter.
