Description

Despite being located in the heart of the neighborhoods of the city of Mountain Brook, the Jemison Park Trail makes for a great escape from the bustle of downtown Birmingham. The trail is shaded and follows along Shades Creek. This scenic trail is very popular both for its convenient location and great amenities. You can also stop off at The Old Mill which is a great spot for photos and to learn more about the history of the area.

Flora & Fauna

Owls, hawks, raccoons, and fox.
