Loved this little spot! One of the few in the city that feels like an oasis! Trails are easy and paved, but the nature is very beautiful. Lots of butterflies, wildlife, a lovely little lake/pond, and tons of wildflowers! Stunning little place. As good as it gets in Chicago, that’s for sure!

Nice nature walk near Rosehill Cemetery. Good for moderate hiking or running but ok for a bit of biking just watch out that some of trails can go in different places and turns can be blocked by the overgrown plants.

The prairies are beautiful and so is the board walk. Most of the paths are paved, which is good for wheelchairs and strollers, but not for hiking.
