My BTC Run -- Lakeshore Trail

Today's #myBTCrun features one of the go to running and biking routes in the Birmingham area: the Lakeshore Trail.

The Lakeshore Trail (officially known as the Shades Creek Greenway) is located in Homewood along Lakeshore Parkway. The paved trail offers 2.5 miles of flat, paved surface without the worry of motor vehicles. The trail runs from Brookwood Blvd near Highway 31 to Greensprings Highway/Columbiana Road. There are water fountains and parking spaces at both ends of the trail. 

 

The trail provides a safe, flat route and is heavily used by runners, walkers, and bikers.

 

The trail offers a scenic oasis just yards away from busy Lakeshore Parkway.
