(Alpha letter below relate to location on map)
Hominy Creek Trail begins at the east end of Green Valley Drive and routes to the north of The Links apartment complex at Clark Lane up to Lillian Drive. The trail passes under Highway 63, East Broadway/Route WW, and Interstate 70. Hominy Creek Trail helps connect neighborhoods located in the area north of Interstate 70 and south of Indian HIlls Park to the Columbia Trail System.
From Green Valley Drive, Hominy Creek Trail users can travel west to the pedway along Broadway to the connection that routes under Old 63, and take the Old 63 pedway south to the Hinkson Creek Trail at Grindstone Nature Area. Hinkson Creek Trail connects to MKT Trail, which connects Columbia to the cross-state Katy Trail. Trail enthusiasts can now travel from Clark Lane all the way to the Katy Trail!
Phase I of the Hominy Creek Trail (1.2 miles from Green Valley Drive to Lansing Avenue) was funded by the Park Sales Tax, and the development project was managed by the Parks and Recreation Department and completed in 2013. Phase II of the trail (1.7 miles from Lansing Avenue to Lillian Drive) was federally funded from the GetAbout Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program, and the development project was managed GetAbout Columbia in the Public Works Department and completed in 2016.
This 410-foot concrete trail was requested by the Timberhill neighborhood to connect residents to the Hominy Creek Trail. The neighborhood access to the connector is at the NW curve on Timberhill Street. The trail connects to Hominy Creek Trail just east of Highway 63.
