Great up and down run for the Chicagoland area, with easy accessibility, plenty of parking, and not too many people. We ran this trail, adding the beach trail for a complete loop. A variety of scenes, from forest to unescape to lakefront keep things interesting.

This was a great hike. I did it with my 15 month old. She was in my carrier and she loved it as well. The "Paradise Valley" was just so beautiful as was the rest of the hike. We had lunch at the fork between trail 10 and trail 2 and it was so peaceful. I highly recommend the hike.
