A really relaxing and peaceful place to walk while being surround by nature. Beautiful wild flowers and you are so close to the lake to actually enjoy it. Many places to stop along and sit to just take it all in. Great for dogs as it's lightly trafficked and very minimal biking. The path is pressed gravel making it hard for people riding bikes to come by you at a high speed. Defiantly go back here

Nice hike around a lake. The landfill that is just west of the lake, while it's not open to walk on, it is the highest man made hill in DuPage County at 982 ft.
The next closest in height is Greene Valley at 880 ft. The top of Greene Valley is open on the weekends during the summer.

Conveniently located. Much open space that takes you away from homes and traffic. Unfortunately right next to a landfill which is gross when you sit to think about it. Regardless it's an enjoyable place to escape and walk.

Built on a garbage dump, this desolate, dead-tree lined trail most resembles a post apocalyptic wasteland.

packed gravel is like an additional shock absorber for running.

Short, but cool trail and beautiful area! You cross the lake at 2 bridges and across the island. Was there mid-day on a Thursday - plenty of people (bike/walk/run/walking dogs/fishing) there is a boat ramp, but there was a box for ramp fees. Caught bluegill, small perch and bass. Saw red-tailed hawk and Caspian Tern. :)
