Rollins Savanna is one of Lake County's largest forest preserves with 1,220 uninterrupted acres. Scattered groves of large oaks, wide-open prairies teeming with wildflowers and native grasses, and abundant wetlands offer the perfect setting for grassland birds and other wildlife. A 5.5-mile trail with bridges and boardwalks encircles the site. This multi-use trail is open for hiking, bicycling, cross-country skiing and nature and wildlife observation. This preserve also offers a native seed nursery, parking, toilets, drinking fountain and a bridge crossing over Mill Creek. Snowmobiles can parallel a small section of the trail as they pass through the preserve.
Close to home, nice clean trail, easy for younger kids to bike and not get too tired! Bathrooms and picnic table area is a plus!
Good long walk. Saw some deer.
Simple. Quiet. Tranquil.
