Product Description

Including hikes near Anniston, Gadsden, Cullman, and Tuscaloosa, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Birmingham reaches out to provide the best day hikes within an hour's drive of the Magic City. From mine-riddled Ruffner Mountain in the Eastwood/Irondale area to the blast furnaces of Tannehill State Park, area hiking paths cross hidden ore shafts, pass over vast deposits of coal, and circle immense limestone quarries. In fact, hiking in Birmingham almost always leads back to three things: iron, coal, and limestone-the history of the Birmingham area and all facets of its growth are welded to its vast mineral wealth. Those hikes, though, that have a minimal connection to iron and steel, such as the wild trails of Talladega National Forest, stake their reputation on a fourth natural resource: rugged physical beauty.
