Charles Mound - Illinois Highpoint is a 2.5 mile out and back trail located near Scales Mound, IL. The trail is primarily used for hiking.
Well my wife and my son did this. happened to score 3 high points in about 16 hours. We managed to push my son in his stroller the whole distance although the road was not good for it at all. This trail is only open the first weekend of May-September since it is on private property. There is a couple of lawn chairs we got to enjoy taking in the view, but other than that there isn't a whole lot of anything up here to see at all.
The trailhead is abit hard to find and this is officially open only certain days of the year. It is an easy hike and be careful too stay on the trail, as it is all private land around the trial
