Best place for hiking

Ended picking dog day to go and needless to say, it was very very crowded. We decided to hike the main trails and it ended up being a very fun experience. identifying the trees was also very entertaining and we hiked a good 3 miles at least, giving my little sister a good workout that she complained about the whole time xD. A nice change of scenery that average Illinois citizens don't see very often. Great to see during the fall for sure.

First time coming here. Was invited to attend the preview Illumination Night. Walked only about 1.5 miles on this night as the other trail is he were closed.

Beautiful area and wonderful trails. Will try and go here on a non holiday season and try and get a few more miles in.

Wonderful place to walk. Trails well maintained. Plenty of wildlife and fauna to enjoy.

Very amazing staff. Wonderful display of trees and rate flora and fauna.

In one idyllic evening, when slanting rays of Sun were shining the river, a deer crossed the river. It etched my memory. it's great pace to be.

OK. it's nice to see it being saved since power lines surround it. I saw cranes and other unique birds. there is an additional hidden waterway surrounded by cattails where the birds fly over.

Excellent spot for walking, essentially 2 one mile loops around decent sized lakes on one side and the DuPage River on the other. This is the back of the Morton Arboretum , the views and the vistas are very nice

Small but cool little place. 2 loops, 1 around each lake. The lake to the north has MUCH more traffic. But many enjoy it. I love the south lake it's more enclosed in the woods and less traveled.

Biking, walking, running, fishing, dog walking, picnicing. Got just about everything in a small little area.

Even though all the signs on the trail say that no runners are allowed, do it anyway! It was a great trail run on nice trails. Very easy with nature all around you. You are required to pay $14 if you are not a member, but to us it was worth it.

Nice Hike. Easy and doesn't take too long to complete. The Track is well maintained, though I wish there wasn't so much noice from the traffic.

Amazing escape from reality. Even with it's close proximity to 88 it is a tranquil and serene environment filled with well kept trails and scenery.

My favorite place in Illinois. I can't believe that I haven't heard of it before. So much variety and well kept. Will definitely try to go back every season.

My favorite place to go in Illinois. Always worth the price

I have hiked this trail many times in all seasons. I discover something new and amazing every time. The Arboretum is a tranquil slice of paradise. On the far east side of the hike you forget you are in a vast metropolitan area.

ther was great places to take pictures and it was beutiful

Gorgeous all year but especially in the fall. Mostly trees and a few flowers along with some prairie flora. A few ducks, geese, some rabbits, and various birds make up the fauna. Not too expensive to get in and well worth it. Great for families!

If you have your camera with you, the West Trail offers better scenic views than the East Trail. Not many animals or flowers, tons of trees. We will definitely do it again in October. With so many gorgeous trees, I can't wait to see the fall colors.
Bring a water bottle with you. Once there, water it is only available at the visitor center, and a 250ml bottle costs $4.00.

Always a beautiful hike. Love the pine grove.
