At about a half mile by a quarter mile in size, Beulah Park in Zion, Illinois would seem like a typical city park. But hidden within the woods (most of the park is wooded) is a web of trails running through the ravine (Kellogg Ravine) along a small creek (Kellogg Creek). For decades these trails have sort of been adopted (and in some cases created) by local mountain bikers and BMXers drawn to this park by the terrain of the ravine. In 2013, the mountain bike trails in Beulah Park became "official" and are now managed by CAMBr (Chicago Area Mountain Bikers).

The pups and I loved this hike. You can walk the perimeter or walk the trails. There’s some incline and decline, lots of wildlife, plenty of shade from the tall trees throughout. Also saw a pretty doe frolicking through the woods about 20 feet away. We will definitely have to come back and explore some more.
