Description

From the south, users can access a trailhead via parking located in a small park on the south side of St. John Road. From the north, users can access a trailhead adjacent to the intersection of Johnstown Road and Hwy 361 (Patriot Parkway). Users may also access the trail via an access point from the Deerfield Hills subdivision. The trail is approximately 1-mile long and follows the trace of Shaw Creek.

The trail offers a few crossing bridges which allow users to experience both sides of the creek. It is not uncommon to see deer and several species of birds during a visit to this trail. The trail is also a popular location for geocachers to hide their loot. The trail was blazed by the local Boy Scouts in 2004 and provides plenty of shade, which is perfect to fend off a hot summer day.

The Banam Shaw Trail can also link with the Briarwood Forest Trail and Billy Creek Trail by way of access points and residential roads found in the Deerfield Hills subdivision to extend the day's adventure.

Flora & Fauna

Oak, maple, and tons of flowering trees and plants. Beautiful fall colors. Deer and other small animals galore. Birds include robin, cardinal, and owl to just name a few.
