We're not super athletic and are more used to flat terrain in the suburbs of Chicago. I see the reviews mention easy but actually for us the hills gave us a good run for the money (a bit challenging and a fantastic workout). Very scenic, some trails rough gravel but most are good compacted crushed limestone.Suzanne St John4 years agohikingWonderful area to go hiking. Well maintained. Rent a boat but the Chain is big so get one with w motor. Bring lunch and great company .....Kim DeGrazia4 years agohikingOscar Bergeron4 years agomountain bikinglimerock road, nicely maintained, great views. Good hills but not really hard.
