The trail had some nice views. I went on a Monday and only saw two other people. My friend broke his ankle tripping over one of the roots sticking out on the trail so be careful about that. Good trail for Illinois.

Best secret in Illinois. Great weekend trip with family and dogs.

Loved this trail! LaSalle Canyon is spectacular and the trail between the Hennepin Canyon and Council Overhang is beautiful and rugged!
