A perfect balance of nature and community, Moss Rock Preserve is a beautiful 250 acre nature preserve abundant with trees and plants, rock outcroppings, streams, waterfalls, wildlife and other unique natural features. Currently Moss Rock Preserve is home to four rare species of plants and a rare variant of Little River Canyon Sandstone Glade – one of only 35 occurrences known around the world!
Moss Rock Preserve’s Boulder Field is a favorite among rock climbers. With numerous technical formations, these boulders appeal to climbers of all skill levels. The City of Hoover is fortunate that these and other natural features exist in Moss Rock. As such, Moss Rock Preserve has been dedicated as a nature preserve in order to insure its long-term survivability.
Nearly 10 miles of hiking footpaths have been constructed within Moss Rock Preserve. These paths allow visitors and nature enthusiasts to witness the beauty of Moss Rock up close and personal. Trail construction and maintenance as well as other general maintenance items within Moss Rock are being carried out primarily by dedicated groups of volunteers.
