I was at the bustop right near this walkway and my phone was robbed off me. This is a walkway with lots of shady people and homeless addicts. Please avoid at all costs for your safety. I am lucky to have escaped physically unharmed and...More

This is a great urban pathway for running in the city away from cars and off the road. You don't cross any traffic for nearly three miles, something that's difficult to find in Brum. Bit isolated as has been mentioned, but close enough to all...More
