Explore the most popular Wild Flowers trails near Birmingham with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Really cool trail and area in general. Fun terrain- big rocks, little rocks, roots, sticks, dirt, gravel. My biggest complaint is the one that has the ongoing theme in the reviews... it’s an extremely difficult trail to follow. Had I not had my handy trail map with the blue dot telling me where I was, there is no telling where I would have ended up. Just a lot of through trails and forks. Better markings would be really nice! Otherwise- solid trail. I went on a Friday afternoon in June, so super hot which = not crowded at all! I’ll take it.

By far the least maintained trail in the Preserve. Great view about 0.3 miles from the Patton Chapel end, but trail is about 6-12” wide the whole way. Not bad, but not great.

pretty nice bouldering please near downtown

Very confusing trail. It's a nice, maintained trail - but not well marked, especially at the intersections.

Easy ride. Beautiful woodlands on both sides of trail.

Overall a great trail. Trail markers are a bit faded and the loop around the quary seemed a little unused making me think that it may be a closed trail, however there was no fallen tree on the trail, so I assumed it was still open. Take caution when doing the quary loop. Extremely narrow and smooth rocks paired with a 50ft drop may be risky on a wet day.

Nice up and down hills in mostly tree shaded hike. Enjoyed the trail.

05/07/2019 A wonderfully vigorous hike! Some areas of the trail were slightly overgrown but still penetrable. I imagine this will become more of an issue as the spring/summer progresses. The trail is mostly well marked and easy to follow.

Trail is well maintained and beautiful. However the trail markings are difficult to follow at times. Will definitely come back!

Did some trail jumping to extend my hike and this place is beautiful! Solid elevation changes and some really cool rock formations along the way. There’s also an impressive line of running waterfalls that intersects most of the trails. Definitely recommend this one!

UPDATE: The correct map now displayed. I live in the area and have walked in Jemison Park numerous times. THIS IS NOT A HIKE! It is mostly a sidewalk path with spontaneous bouts of nature in a rural area. The mapped recording provided here is not even in the park for most of the walk, it leads to a residential neighborhood where the sidewalks end and you’re walking on the street for much of the time. The actual Jemison Park Trail is an approximate 3.5 mile out and back trail and is a nice neighborhood park to get some daily exercise. The map provided here starts at 1/2 mile into the park trail and doesn’t include that first 1/2 mile at all. Update: After suggesting an edit thru the app, the correct map is now displayed.

This is a great trail for day hike. Views are awesome and the trail is in great shape. The ridge and valley trail is rough. Lot of up and down. Trail has a lot of rocks and roots in it. That was only tough section for me. Highly recommend this one

A nice walk in the woods

Long trail mainly in the woods! The quarry view is really cool though. There are a lot of old mines around and some pretty wildflowers if you take the time to look! We hike here often, just follow the signs!

The best urban nature preserve in the world!!

Parking was crowed but there are so many trails that it was not crowded once we started hiking. Interesting area, trails were easy and well marked. Lots of trails crisscrossing did get a little confusing. Trails are numbered so paper map would help. Good area for exercise if you live nearby

Some area looked like a little fairy land with the big boulders and all the moss. The white trail was not marked very well in some areas. We got off the trail somehow and ended up on the power line trail. Ended up doing a 6 mile hike instead of a 3 mile. Enjoyed the area though.

Hiked this trail last weekend and enjoyed every minute of it! We planned on only doing the 4 mile hike on the other side of the park and ended up at Grace’s Gap Overlook making it a total of 10 miles! We will definitely be back!

Very easy trail to check out some of the mines at the park. Went a week ago and there were a few muddy spots but otherwise it was a nice trail

Great park with awesome trails. All the trails are well maintained and tons of old mining buildings and mines to check out

Combo of Blue to White from the waterfall!

Great trail even for a cold, windy 35 degree weather day mid January. Went to Cambrian Overlook and the other Overlook past that. Brought hot coffee and a PB&J and sat at the top overlook to have a snack. Wonderful time!

Parked at Simmons school Trailhead. Followed oranges blazes to High Falls and then to where the trail came out on Chapel Rd Was marked well. Beautiful!

Beautiful views, but very hard to stay on the loop as trail marks are confusing. Got off on side trail few times. Thanks to blue gps dot on the AllTrails app that I could find my way back. Otherwise five star trail. Will do it again.

awesome area, well maintained trails and a ton of cute activity areas for kids. Not too bad of a walk up to the overlook, but a little muddy today! bring some good boots:)
