A fun winter hike with frozen streams and waterfalls.
This is a beautiful two-tiered Trail. Both Upper and Lower Dells and the Falls are beautiful. Go early and beat the crowds. Weekdays are best. About 4.4 miles if you hike all of it. It's a great morning workout.
Coolest place to visit! Loved it and so glad we didn't skip it after visiting the Starved Rock SP. Highly recommend it!
Beautiful waterfalls and the sandstone is spectacular
Really cute, family swimming hole with waterfall. Pretty crowded though
This is one of my top faves state parks in this part of Illinois!! Hands down there is so many amazing sight to experience here. All of my kids enjoy it. The terrain gives you a little bit of everything: hills, stairs, rocks, streams to walk through, cool views of sandstone, trees, old roots, and yeah just an amazing space. We like to hike one side , stop in the pavilion for lunch, then reload and hike the other side. You can't go wrong in this place and it will feel like you are in another state:)!!
Great to see the waterfall. You really have to work your butt off to get there but man, it is all worth it. Make sure you take a plunge into that water and slide down the rock under the waterfall!
beautiful waterfalls rules not strictly enforced
Great place to see in the fall. Make
sure you go into the canyons and walk around if you can.
