Rotary Trail is a half-mile linear park in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. The trail was predominantly funded by the Birmingham Rotary Club in honor of their centennial anniversary. The trail runs from 20th Street to 24th Street along First Avenue South and connects two major downtown areas: the 19-acre Railroad Park on one side, and Sloss Furnaces, a National Historic Landmark, on the other side. It opened in 2016.

The entrance to the trail has a 46-foot-tall sign that reads, "Rotary Trail in the Magic City." The sign was modeled after the historical "Birmingham the Magic City" sign that previously existed in the city.

  • We took a couple of morning strolls on the Rotary Trail and it was very nice. I wish more cities would do things like this.  more »
  • What a beautiful path. So well planned and nicely landscaped. Just wish it extended a few miles so it would be totally worth bringing our bikes to ride it.  more »
