Explore the most popular forest trails near Shawnee with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

A good hike that is surprisingly rural for how close you are to the suburbs. The hike down the dam is somewhat steep, but then the main loop is lots of flat fields.

On hot days, the sun could get rough. There are scattered groves of trees you go through (one has the crumbling remains of a stone building), but they are probably less than 30% of the trail.

Tons of birds, and if you want to explore close to Mill Creek on the West side you'll probably spot turtles and frogs. The train goes right by the creek every 20 minutes or so.

Nice trail. Lots of people on a nice day though.

Used this trail for training for backpacking. Good trail not much elevation change.

Longest of the trails at smp. Nice hike. Rocky but not difficult.

Great trail

Very nice trail for hiking. Suggest hiking shoes as it is rocky in parts.
