Jefferson County


As the most populous county in Alabama and covering the sprawling Birmingham metropolitan area, Jefferson County has an abundance of outdoor activities and trails.

Named after Thomas Jefferson and containing the farthest point south of the Appalachian Mountains visitors can enjoy the Jameson Park Nature Trail or the scenic Black Creek Trail in Fultondale for a bit of scenery and exercise.

For the avid mountain bikers, try out the rugged trails at Trussville Sports Complex to test all your skills over the short five mile loop, a real surprise of a trail so close to a metropolitan area. For the city dwellers or exercise walkers check out the 16th street walking trail or the scenic Mountain Brook Furnace trail complete with views of the oldest historic furnace in the area complete with picnic area.
