This is a lovely trail with little rivers and pretty scenery. There's hilly terrain and I went during the winter so parts of the trail were icy. I got lost trying to do the full loop. The trail can intersect with a nearby trail if you aren't paying attention. So I suggest using this app to stay on course.
Awesome place to hike
One of 4 great hilly hikes around Chicago.
Great loop trail with moderately difficult hike up a steep, winding trail. Great hill to train on!
Mill Creek adds a nice touch to this enjoyable trail. Horseback rider was on the trail too.
nice, shady trail with enough hills and curves to keep things interesting. great place to take our dog for a hike, just have to watch out for horse leftovers.
