This hike hits highlights of Birmingham past and future, starting with the world’s largest cast-iron statue, Vulcan, the Roman god of the forge, erected in tribute to the iron and steel industries that built Birmingham. The hike proceeds along a section of what used to be the Birmingham Mineral Railroad, which once served the mines along the mountainside and is now a paved greenway with views of the city skyline. The walk then descends into the new center of Birmingham’s economy, the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After ambling through the campus, we head to the dining and entertainment district at Five Points South and up quaint Cobb Lane. Finally, we make a steep ascent along 20th Street South back to the Vulcan Trail parking lot.
