Our Vision for The Red Mountain Cut

The Red Mountain Cut Foundation, an Alabama-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has a vision to create a unifying space everyone in our region can take pride in. We want to connect our communities on both sides of Red Mountain by restoring, improving and preserving this special place for recreation, education and interaction.

Red Mountain Cut Location

The Red Mountain Cut Foundation has a vision to build a bicycle and pedestrian trail through the Red Mountain Cut as well as supporting bike/ped friendly improvements on 21st Avenue South and 22nd Street South. The transformative improvements would be a part of the Red Rock Trails System connecting the ever-growing network of Jefferson County trails in the Jones Valley, Village Creek and Shades Creek corridors and beyond. Improvements in the Cut will connect the following area assets for pedestrian (all within a 5-20 minute walk radius) and biking recreation and commuting:

  • UAB
  • 5-Points
  • Southtown Court (to be Edge Hill)
  • Highland Avenue
  • English Village
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Birmingham Zoo
  • Downtown Homewood
  • Vulcan Park
  • Rosedale
