Advocates for expanding Alabama’s walking and biking trails celebrated Earth Day by stepping out on the newest section of a growing trail network in Birmingham, and turning earth for the next segment.
Staff, board members and supporters of the nonprofit Freshwater Land Trust officially cut the ribbon on the Hugh Kaul Trail, a section of the Red Rock Trail System that is expanding across Jefferson County. Joining them were public and private partners in the project, including Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin, Jefferson County Health Officer Dr. Mark Wilson and Jefferson County Commissioner Sheila Tyson.
The new Hugh Kaul Trail segment, formerly known as the Jones Valley Trail Extension, links the popular Rotary Trail, which connects to downtown and Railroad Park, with the vibrant Avondale neighborhood to the east.
