Be careful during flash floods at Moss Rock. The creeks can become quite dangerous after/during rain showers due to all the street run-off above the preserve. Even a few feet of water can sweep you off your feet and there are plenty of fallen trees and debris to finish the job. Cheers.

Good walk. Can go up Balmoral and back down Overbrook if you want to add some hills.

I love this place because it is so close to my house and I can get a good two to three hour hike in. The Boulders are the most popular but there are other spots that I believe are even more beautiful because they are away from the crowd and you have to some what hike to get to them.

Fun little trail in Ruffner Park with great views once you break out on the ridge. Has the added fun of a scramble in the abandonned quarry at the end. Find your own limit of height and exposure! One of my favorite hikes in Alabama so far.
