This is more than just one trail. It's a series of trails that adds up to more than 3 miles. Nice wildlife. I saw several deer, and a coon, on the Kaskaskia trail. The trails are well marked and well maintained.

Nice wooded trails with several loops so you can walk as far as you want. The trails I have hiked were very easy. They were pretty flat and well maintained. I saw several deer and many birds!

Very big lake, but not many viewing areas. Nice trails through the forest around the lake.Very good birding stop.
