Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Railroad Park is ground zero for the new Birmingham, a recycled and resurgent city, a Birmingham of shared space. It’s a center of activity where a diverse citizenry meets to relax or recreate. e park comprises four city blocks, 19 acres, with ponds and streams and native trees, flowers, and grasses. ere are wide-open meadows and undulating hills.

In the fall, hillsides of muhly grass turn a blazing pink, and in the summer, a profusion of flowers blooms. ere are playgrounds and exercise equipment, dining on the plaza, and a grassy amphitheater for concerts. Elevated walkways allow you to survey the city center in every direction: the downtown skyline; trains rolling through the center of town; the city’s new ballpark, Regions Field; the towers of Children’s Hospital; the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s medical complex and college campus; and Vulcan, atop Red Mountain"
