Easy trail, beautiful scenery. Had two kids (8 and 2) both were able to hike with no problems. Kids loved it. Will go back again.

Great view of Downtown Birmingham, and cool to watch planes take off and land from the airport. Its a nice active walk. Its not difficult but its not a mindless walk, either.

Buckeye was great. Moderately Hard. Lizard Loop was fairly easy.

Awesome place to spend the day or even a few hours. Trails are in great condition. Great for trail running, hiking and geocaching. Great views and all kinds of things to explore.

A lot of historic value to this area. Less of a trail and more of a sidewalk moving in, under, over, and around huge industrial machinery, but very interesting and enjoyable.

There are many trails that are super easy, so there was no problem taking my 5 year old. We did Quarry Trail to Lookout. The view was amazing. I'll definitely come back, and probably do some more challenging trails when I don't have my kids with me.
