“This scenic out-and-back takes runners along the northeastern half of the Jemison Park Trail.”— Kristen Arendt
You'll immediately enter what at times feels like a tunnel of trees and be running along a wide, well-maintained path that follows along Shades Creek. The creek adds a pleasant aspect to your run.
At just over 0.5 miles you'll cross Overbrook Road and then head over a bridge to cross Shades Creek. From here, the trail roughly parallels Mountain Brook Parkway. Keep an eye open for the point where Shades Creek crosses under the road as this indicates your next highlight, The Old Mill. Enjoy a stop off at this historic site before turning back the way you came.
As an out-and-back run, you can easily customize the length of your outing based on how far you want to go.
