High Ore Line Trail Description

The High Ore Line Trail, which opened in 2016, is located in the southwestern outskirts of Birmingham, Alabama. The pathway offers a convenient and pleasant transportation option as it passes over several large roads, three active railroads and Valley Creek. For a majority of the route, trees surround the trail, making it a welcoming place to explore this part of the city.

In summer 2019, an extension was completed to connect the trail to Red Mountain Park, complete with a new park entrance on Venice Road. The park’s namesake mountain was the source of rich iron ore deposits that made the city an industrial powerhouse in the late 1800s. In the park, you can connect to the BMRR South Trail, which is part of a network of hiking and biking pathways throughout the 1,500-acre park. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking on the northern end of the trail can be found on either side of Etheridge Drive, where two large parking lots offer many spaces. 

There is also a new entrance and parking lot to the Red Mountain Park on Venice Road, south of Wenoah Road and of Brenda Avenue SW. 

High Ore Line Trail Reviews

Rode my bike here a few weeks ago. Only a few people on the trail that day. Some shady areas to help stay cool from the sun. A little elevation just to make the ride worthwhile. Very enjoyable trail for a bike ride.

Really nice trail for biking

Wonderful trail for biking. Never too crowded, plenty of parking at the medical center and easy road crossings. Some great uphill challenges followed by relaxing declines. Will come back as a regular from today forward.
