It was about 45 degrees today and the paths were wet and MUDDY! Wear good hiking boots... Paths are a mix of dirt, grass and rock. Overall, it was a nice, moderate difficulty hike.
Very nice trail in prairie surroundings. We walked as a family with two kids and our dog. A perfect walk on a sunny Sunday in September.
Nice walk through Illinois Prairie atmosphere. Quite with lots of birds, trees and Prairie flowers. About 4 miles over all.
