Ruffner Mtn Nature Park Loop Hike

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.

Went hiking with the family over the weekend. Was testing out a new backpacking pack with my son for Boy Scouts. Clear trails, beautiful views, easy access in and out. Highly recommended for families.

Hubby and I visited this place a few weeks ago. The location is strange, we thought or gps was wrong because the parking lot is in an industrial park. It's also called Red Mountain Park. The history that goes with this site is very interesting (iron ore mine's, late 1800's). They are in the process of many upgrades but the ziplines we're in order and watched a few folks having fun. The trails were fun, hubby and I are middle age our of shape so we broke a sweat on this trail. Several others totaling 13 miles. Paths were clear and marked. Some rugged terrain. Can't wait to go back and yet the other trails! ! Definitely worthy checking out more than once.

Great place to ride but sometimes too crowded with walkers, runners, and dogs. Almost got tangled up between a dogs leash and his owner... Could have been very bad.

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.
