One of the greatest cities of the world, Cahokia was larger than London was in AD 1250. The Mississippians who lived here were accomplished builders who erected a wide variety of structures from practical homes for everyday living to monumental public works that have maintained their grandeur for centuries.

Gorgeous views, level ground, and lots of persimmon trees. Watch out for flooding in early summer.

A historic and fun hike, not the most scenic but still a great time.

Need to remember bug spray next time! Not all trails were well marked, but I enjoyed it.

Great place to hike/walk with the whole family. We followed the perimeter trail which was about 5 miles. Good mix of open field and wooded trails.
