Shades Creek is a 56.4 mile-long stream running southwest through Shades Valley to the Cahaba River near the Shelby County/Bibb County line.

Shades Creek starts near the Birmingham Race Course and runs through Irondale, Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Homewood, Hoover, and Bessemer. The Black Warrior/Cahaba River Land Trust has purchased several acres of land along the creek, primarily behind Wildwood Shopping Center and in Shannon for permanent conservation. Homewood is building the Shades Creek Greenway along the waterway to connect Jemison Park with West Homewood Park.
