This preserve is owned by the city of Winchester and located between downtown Winchester and Jim Barnett Park. The Green Circle connects Shawnee Springs Preserve to many of the community’s natural spaces, historic sites, and commercial areas.
An interpretive brochure about Shawnee Springs Preserve, created by Shenandoah University students, is available to the public at the trailhead off Hollingsworth Drive (see below), and at Jim Barnett Park and the Winchester-Frederick County Visitor Center.
Hours of Operation: Open year-round, from dawn until dusk.

From the Visitor Center, Wilkins Lake, or Shenandoah University, turn right (north) onto Pleasant Valley Road. At the traffic light, turn left onto Hollingsworth Drive. Turn left again at the stop sign, then take the first right at the Civil War Trails sign to a parking lot and information kiosk.
