Another fascinating hike through Birmingham’s glory days as an iron giant, the Ike Maston/BMMR Loop climbs up ridges and leads to the beautiful mission-style architecture of the Redding Shaft Mine and Hoist House, then follows a section of the old Birmingham Mineral Railroad (BMRR) back to the trailhead. Red dust. Iron ore. This red powder is what made a little dot on the map in the middle of Alabama a major southeastern city. Birmingham is nicknamed the “Magic City.” It rose, almost overnight, to become a major iron and steel producing city, and it was all due to the fact that the Birmingham area was one of the few places in the world that had all three of the key ingredients needed to make iron and steel: hematite (iron ore), limestone, and coke (coal).
