The Lake Shore Trail that surrounds Shawnee is a 3.5 mile flowing trail. It’s incredibly picturesque and makes the perfect trail for biking, hiking or just a romantic walk around the lake!!!

They have a trail that goes around the lake. We usually ride our bicycles. Pretty scenery. Fishing. Swimming in the summer months. Campground too. Not too crowded.
