    Red Mountain Park consists of 1,500 acres, stretching four-and-a-half miles between the cities of Homewood and Bessemer, along the ridges and hollows of the mountain from which it takes its name. Red Mountain was the primary source of the rich iron ore deposits that—along with vast coal fields and abundant supplies of limestone—prompted the founding of Birmingham in 1871 as the first industrial city of the “New South”. Today, more than a generation removed from the closing of the last ore mine on its slope, Red Mountain is the site of one of the most ambitious, exciting and historically significant new park projects in America. Currently, the Park contains 7 visitor destinations within a 10-mile trail system open for hiking and biking: Red Ore Zip Tour Zip Line 3 Historic Iron Ore Mines 2 Overlooks SkyHy Treehouse
