Sharon Woods Loop Trail Description

The Sharon Woods Loop Trail encircles a picturesque lake in popular Sharon Woods in Sharonville. The county park offers a visitor center, boathouse, golf course, picnic areas and athletic fields over 730 acres.

The trail courses primarily through dense woodlands along the lake’s shoreline, passing safely under Interstate 275 and E. Kemper Road to preserve the pathway’s serenity.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Sharon Woods Loop Trail is available at a few parking lots for Sharon Woods off E. Kemper Drive. From Interstate 275 north of Cincinnati, take the exit for Sharonville and US 42. Head south on US 42/Lebanon Road to the main park entrance on the left. Trail users will want to continue deeper into the park by turning left on Buckeye Falls Drive and then left on Highbanks Drive. A couple of parking areas are available on both the left and right before E. Kemper Road.

Sharon Woods Loop Trail Reviews

I rode this trail near the end of May, last year. This loop trail within Sharon Woods MetroPark is a very pretty little trail around a man-made lake. The loop is about 2.5 miles long, with extensions to overlook the lake's harbor and to a lakeside lodge. I rode two laps around the lake as well as taking side trips to the harbor overlook and to the Lakeside Lodge for a total of 6.1 miles. The trail actually passes underneath I-275. There are a few short climbs that should not give anyone who bikes every once and a while any trouble. The path is paved but narrow (7-8 feet wide) with quite a bit of pedestrian traffic. I can't image how busy it must be on the weekends. If you're from out of town you will have to pay a one-time use fee of $5. Different levels of season passes are available for locals. This is run by the Hamilton County Metroparks. Definitely, worth a look. I'll be back.

Beautiful scenery, only wished they put arrows pointing to the different trails. I got lost on one of the trails dead ends, thankfully, so did two other people and we found our way back. Will go back again.

We rode this trail when we were in the area on business. The loop is scenic and shady. Hilly enough to be a challenge. Lots of parking.
