Moss Rock Preserve has everything for anyone who loves the great outdoors and exploring Birmingham, including nearly 12-miles of hiking trails, waterfalls and rock climbing. Boulder Field is one of the highlights of Moss Rock, featuring, you guessed it, boulders that appeal to climbers of all skill level. The Southeastern Climbers Coalition (SCC) is organizing an event on June 4th for the community to come together and help clean up the graffiti on the boulders and work on trails to better support the volume of climber and hiker traffic.
