“Enjoy rolling hills through restored savannas, prairies and wetlands. Several bridges lead over small ravines.”— Forest Preserves of Cook County
The run starts on the Yellow Loop. This trail will guide you through scenic rolling woodlands, over bridges, near deep ravines and onto other trail routes.
Continuing onto the unpaved Brown Loop within Deer Grove East provides a continuation of the wooded and scenic running. The Brown Loop winds over bridges and through restored savannas, prairies and wetlands. In the spring, look for vernal (temporary) ponds, which support native amphibious species, among other wildlife.
Picnic shelters, comfort stations, and water are available at Deer Grove East. There are restaurant options east along Dundee Road, within two miles of the preserve.
