Homewood Nature Preserve

351 Keneagy Hill Rd. | Paradise Township

 

This short trail takes you on a very serene walk though the woods. The hike meanders through the trees and takes you by Eshelman Run, which has excellent water quality, but you don't have to cross over the water. Just after the trail begins there is a grove of young trees and in the fall red maples are found throughout.



There is one steep hill, but nothing too challenging. When you come out of the woods the trail switchbacks through a meadow before taking you back to the trailhead. There are other trails that lead to private property, so be sure to follow the marked trail.

Parking for this trail is limited. It really is just a few spaces along the road. There is a red barn just before the preserve signs and the trail begins behind it.
