Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This hike combines the virtues of two venues: Shades Creek Greenway and Homewood Forest Preserve. The greenway is a paved trail along Lakeshore Drive that makes a great place to walk, run, or ride a bike, without interaction with automobiles. It features Shades Creek and some nice floodplain forest. Homewood Forest Preserve offers a moderately vigorous mountain climb into an intact forest, a close encounter with a pocket of wilderness in the midst of urban development."
