Today's #myBTCrun features one of the most scenic places in the city of Birmingham: Ruffner Mountain. Local runner, Ryan James, shares a photo from his recent morning run on the trails of Ruffner. Thanks, Ryan!
Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve is a 1,011 acre natural oasis located on one of the last undeveloped stretches of the Red Mountain ridge known as Ruffner Mountain. Just a 10 minute escape from downtown Birmingham -- Ruffner feels like a world away. Enjoy a short stroll or explore the mountain for an all day adventure. Miles of peaceful forested trails with surprising biodiversity, wetlands teaming with wildlife, remnants of past mining history, and spectacular views from several overlooks await those who venture out. Ruffner offers several trail races during the year. For more info, click HERE.
