Overview

Including hikes near Anniston, Gadsden, Cullman, and Tuscaloosa, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Birmingham reaches out to provide the best day hikes within an hour's drive of the Magic City. From mine-riddled Ruffner Mountain in the Eastwood/Irondale area to the blast furnaces of Tannehill State Park, area hiking paths cross hidden ore shafts, pass over vast deposits of coal, and circle immense limestone quarries. In fact, hiking in Birmingham almost always leads back to three things: iron, coal, and limestone-the history of the Birmingham area and all facets of its growth are welded to its vast mineral wealth. Those hikes, though, that have a minimal connection to iron and steel, such as the wild trails of Talladega National Forest, stake their reputation on a fourth natural resource: rugged physical beauty.

Read an Excerpt

The morning I left for this hike, I noticed that someone had stolen two rocking chairs from our front porch during the night. I was pretty upset. As I approached the trail, I thought about the thieves briefly, but the sight of the misty woods immediately put them to rest. Hopefully you will find these woods as peaceful.
From the parking lot, approach the newly built rock entrance, which displays imprints of leaves from trees you'll see along way. Follow the trail into the woods and stay to the right. A map board soon comes into view. Here you can check your bearings and fill out an information card, which will let park officials know who is on the trail. Whenever you go hiking, it's always a good idea to let someone know where you are going and when you plan on returning home.
