The City of Homewood owns two forest preserves on Shades Mountain adjacent to the Homewood High School.  Come and spend a relaxing two hours walking with us in the lower preserve.  Rated moderately easy.  Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age 6 and older welcome.  Meet 2:00 p.m. in the Homewood High School east (nearest Brookwood Village Shopping Center) parking lot, just off Lakeshore Drive in Homewood.

DIRECTIONS TO MEETING PLACE

Homewood High School East Parking Lot-High School address is 1901 South Lakeshore Drive, Homewood, AL 35216. From I-65 exit at Lakeshore Parkway, Exit #255. Take Lakeshore Boulevard (which becomes Lakeshore Drive) 2.4 miles to the east, towards Green Springs Highway, Samford University and Brookwood Mall. Drive to the 7th traffic light on Lakeshore.
