BMRR South Trail Description

The BMRR South Trail is part of a network of 14 miles of hiking and biking pathways throughout Birmingham’s 1,500-acre Red Mountain Park, which opened in 2012. The park’s namesake mountain was the source of rich iron ore deposits that made the city an industrial powerhouse in the late 1800s. The Birmingham Mineral Railroad, for which the rail-trail is named, delivered ore from the mountain’s mines to furnaces within the city for processing.

This scenic, unpaved trail, surrounded by tall trees full of Alabama wildlife, is wide enough for many users and leads to destination sites that showcase this mining and industrial history.

 

Parking and Trail Access

Entrance to the Birmingham Mineral Railroad (BMRR) South Trail is located at 2011 Frankfurt Drive in Birmingham. Currently, temporary parking is available directly across the street from the entrance and plans for a formal parking lot are underway.
