Last night, Bham Now talked to Carlee Sanford, Executive Director at Ruffner Mountain about a post on Facebook by the popular nature center that was getting a great deal of attention on social media about the Old Irondale Trailhead becoming inaccessible to the general public.
As of 5:00am, the post had been shared over 220 times.

Despite the news, Sanford passionately made clear her vision why the land at the trailhead, Ruffner Mountain and the necklace of parks and trails around Birmingham matters.
