Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve

This rugged mountain was once home to mining operations just east of downtown Birmingham, but now contains more than 10 miles of official park trails. The trails at beautiful Ruffner Mountain weave in and out of old quarries, rusted mining equipment and up and down several steep and rugged climbs. Ruffner Mountain has some of the most picturesque views of Birmingham on the Overlook Trail. The park can be accessed by the Nature Center and the main parking lot, the Ruffner Road ball fields, or the Ruffner Road parking lot.
