Amazing run. Really enjoyed the woods area

Very nice, short hiking trail that take less than an hour to complete.

Highway noise is audible the whole time and the trail crossed several road with decent vehicle traffic. At one point it ran up against housing. Decent trail if you take the proximity of the city into account. The dog had a lot of fun though.

Beautiful fall day. Amazing golds and flame reds from the trees. Cool breeze in the sun making it perfect for hiking. A little road noise near the 55 but otherwise you could never guess where you you are. Easy walking. Great for our dog. Not too many times you can look down in Illinois unless your in a building but the glen gives you that privilege. Thankful for such a beautiful day.

I didn’t make it to the waterfall before nightfall, but a bit disappointed. Wasn’t as exclusive as I enjoy my trail hikes to be. Head the highway the whole time and there were telephone wires through the forest area and lots of roads to cross. Not bad for the length and the proximity to the city, and the areas are nice.

I go to this trail often because of the proximity to my house. Depending upon which loops you take, you can make this walk anywhere from a half hour to an hour. Because it is at the corner of 87th (basically Boughton) and Lemont, there is a lot of traffic nearby but you only hear the traffic at the very beginning and end of the north loop near the parking lot. North loop features a wooded area with nice peaks of sunlight and a foot bridge; I occasionally see deer but the sight of humans never seems to bother them. South loop is more out in the open with beautiful tall grasses and is very sunny; you can take a path to get to the Oldfield Oaks dog park. It isn’t terribly busy but I will typically see 3 or 4 other individuals or families on a weekend and 1 or 2 during a weekday. The trail is best used for walking, dog walking, and running. Both trails are paved with tiny gray gravel that always seems to find its way into my shoes!

Very pretty. Nice neighborhood. Had a hard time finding it at first. Had to pull out the map on my phone to make it a complete loop back to my car.

There weren’t any trail signs and the path isn’t a complete loop. It’s pretty but my dog didn’t like it. Lots of mud this time of year

Really calm hike through the forest. There is a nice small waterfal mid trail. Lot's of runners.

Not for biking too slippery!

Good gravel trail for hiking/biking.

Beautiful early morning walks in this 9 mile trail.

Great place to train for long distance hikes, but not technical. Bug spray/lotion is a must between miles 4 - 7 from the parking lot off Bluff rd. to the Des Plaines River outlook because the mosquitoes will cover you if you haven’t applied anything. I think miles 7 - 2 (going counterclockwise/NE from the Bluff rd lot) has the best scenery.

Nice trail!

Nice trail , short if you are a long distance runner , I had to go around twice to get 4 miles, but is a super nice place for a nice walk , the lake to the right of the parking is beautiful with lots of trees and benches to see the water and relax ! Well taken care of. I recommend

Good trail to test out pack load/equipment. Bring a hat or sunblock for there isn’t much shading. It’s a pretty busy loop, but everyone is polite and there’s room for everyone.

"Main Trail" is 9.5 mile long with beautiful long trees and some water bodies along the route. scenic views mentioned on trail map arent really scenic. water is all dried out. trail roads clearly marked. no water fountain in middle of trail. restrooms every 3 miles almost. horse back riding possible.

beautiful scenery. and lovely people surround this hidden gem of a lake

Wear bug spray. I think I fed half the mosquito population of Palos on our walk!
