Starved Rock State Park is open from dawn to dusk.

Runner Notes

Lots of steps and visitor traffic makes this a poor run.

Description

The Connecting Trail - Starved Rock follows a short climb to the park's namesake. The grade is moderate, but plenty of steps will have your legs feeling the burn if you rush to the top. Once there, enjoy the panoramic views of the river, dam, islands, and nearby landmarks.
