Jones Valley Trail Description

The Jones Valley Trail near downtown Birmingham stretches a half mile along 1st Avenue South from 25th Street to 32nd Street. Following a former railroad corridor, the paved, tree-lined rail-trail is just a block from the Rotary Trail, which was built on an old railroad cut through the middle of 1st Avenue South. Together, the two trails link two terrific city attractions, Railroad Park and the Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark. They are also part of the Red Rock Ridge and Valley Trail System, a 750-mile network of multi-use trails throughout Jefferson County.

Jones Valley Trail Reviews

This is a cute little trail that runs along 1st Ave N. near Sloss Furnace. It's paved and very stroller/bike/skates/walking friendly. It leads right up to the Rotary Trail and right past that is Railroad Park. I like to start at the Jones Valley trailhead and walk all the way to Railroad Park for a few laps and then back. It's aroun 3 miles of you do that.
