Originally, Adamsville, Alabama was established as a simple railroad town. It was a stopping spot to refuel, stretch, and relax. Then, coal was found here. Almost overnight, it became a mining town. The population boomed. Families settled and the town flourished. Although the town is small, there is a sense of community here that you rarely see these days. From the neighbors walking their dogs to the residents of the senior center pairing with the kindergarteners for dances, the atmosphere is small-town peace that you can't find anywhere but a small town. Because it's such a small town, Adamsville doesn't have very many traditional amenities for dogs, so if you want to visit a dog park or restaurant, you'll need to drive a little.
Twenty-three miles away, in Birmingham, you'll find Red Mountain Park, which has 1,500 acres to roam. There are fifteen miles of marked trails for you and your dog to walk. The park is open to the public all year long, dogs included. You'll find marked historic places as you explore, so if you and your pooch are history buffs, you'll pawsitively love this park! There is even a six-acre dog park where you can let your dog off her leash so she can run, romp, and make some new furry friends.
