  • If you are looking for a relaxing hike close in to the city, Red Mountain is the place. It is simply beautiful. The well-marked paths are wide and will take you through what is left of the historic...

  • I went zip lining with my sister and nephew on the mega zip and highly recommend it. It was a ton of fun and totally worth the money. It is a great day or few hours adventure for locals or visitors...

  • Love this place. Clean and fellow hikers are always nice, helpful, and accommodating. Dogs are welcome and they even have cool mines and a ropes course, obstacle course, multiple dogs parks and meeting places. Trails need to be better marked though.
  • Fun hiking trails with a variety of difficulty levels and and scenery. Suitable for mountain biking as well. Be sure to visit the old iron ore mining buildings as they are quite interesting. Adirondack chairs on the far end of the park provide a fun and scenic spot to view the Oak Mountain skyline. Well maintained trails!
