A fun run with lots of short but steep hills along the Fox River.

Adopt These Trails!

Overview

This area is nice because it is a good spot to get some elevation changes in an otherwise flat Illinois. None of the hills are very high, just lots of quick elevation changing. There is a lot of singletrack, but also some wider paths that are generally flatter, which give you some time to rest and recharge, or warm up / cool down.
Features: Fall Colors — River/Creek — Views — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know

This park is used by mountain bikers so keep your eyes open. Watch out for mosquitos.

Runner Notes

Trails consist of rocks, roots, an easy creek crossing or two, and lots of short but steep hills. This park is used by mountain bikers so keep your eyes open. Watch out for mosquitos.

Description

Start out with a flat and wide track trail as a warm up, while you catch a great view of the Fox River. As you progress, the trail becomes more rugged and more fun. You'll swear you're on a roller coaster with the steep but short rolling hills.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of waterfowl in the standing pools of water. I also saw a muskrat.

History & Background

This land was once a strip mine, and a portion of it was a landfill as well.
