Good trail up to the primary rock formations. If you go clockwise, the turn off the river to river trail is hard to find. Look for the older style sign on a post. I'd recommend counter-clockwise. It would be easier.

Lots and lots of spider webs. Came home sticky with them even waving a stick.

Back half of the loop is slightly overgrown, but the foot path was clear enough. Guessing most people walk out to the rocks then turn around.

Beautiful rock formations and walk by the creek. Many trails to explore and get lost... App definitely helps (we didn't get lost)

My girlfriend and I decided on an impromptu hike on a Saturday afternoon in early December. We started at the trail head on Panthers Den Ln at approx. 3 pm. We were able to make it to the den where we found amazing rock formations and passage ways. I've lived in Southern Illinois all my life. These are some of the best and most unique rock formations in our beautiful area. We had to turn around after exploring the panthers den due to lack of daylight, but we will be back soon to continue on.
