Did part of the west side with my 5 year old. It was quite enjoyable.

Beautiful landscape. Trail markings caused some confusion.

I prefer the west side of the preserve, which is unpaved and not so crowded.

Great trails and surprisingly good birding there today. I like this place better during the week (less people) and in the spring or fall when it is much less buggy.

Plenty of paved road with beautiful views of trees and wildflowers. Also has some good gravel paths that take you through the woods.

Deer Grove East (where the directions take you) has a paved trail that is a 3 mile loop, great place to walk year round!

Great trails. Best in the northwest burbs. Paved trail to the east is sunny and decently flat for road runners. I stick to the west side for more of a dirt trail experience. The yellow trail works like a highway to the more difficult (unmarked) single track trails.
