Ruffner Mountain Nature Center
This outstanding nature center situated on the site of an iron ore mine was closed in the 1950s and reopened as a nature refuge in the 1970s. Visitors to this mid-city refuge can explore the former quarries and ore crushers, hike 10 miles of trails, watch hawks soar, study rock formations and enjoy the wildflowers and wildlife.
Ruffner Nature Center is a great place to go. It doesn't cost anything and they have beautiful walking trails that you can spend all day on or only a few minutes depending on the time you have. They have easy and challenging trails. I really loved going there!
