The Lakeshore Trail (also known as the Homewood Shades Creek Greenway) is a paved 6 mile out and back trail located in Homewood and is good for all skill levels. The trail is used by walkers, runners, bikers and dogs. It might not be the hike you are looking for with your Troop but this is perfect for your Cubs.
The trail starts on the east end of the trail at Target just below Brookwood Hospital. The west end of the trail is at Columbiana Road and there is a parking lot accessible from South Lakeshore Drive.
Phase 2 of this trail should start soon and continue behind the Walmart and end close to John Carroll on Lakeshore Parkway. Eventually the trail will continue to West Homewood Park.
