From Birmingham, take I-65 north to Exit 264, head west on Daniel Payne Drive, then take the first right onto Coalburg Road. After 8.2 miles, turn right on Bevins-Brookside Road and follow the signs to the Five Mile Creek Canoe Company in Brookside.
And yes, girls, size DOES matter. Whoever pulls the biggest tire out of the creek will win a prize.
