Gander Mountain Lake County Forest preserve is a 3.0 - 5.0 mile loop trail located near Antioch, Illinois. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking, mountain Biking and birding. Gander Mountain Forest Preserve is a rather unique place in Lake County in that it contains some rather rugged topography. This very scenic forest preserve is not developed (though there is some trail maintenance) and subsequently provides a much more wild and rugged experience than a typical Lake County Forest Preserve.
No path markers so if you just want to see the top of gander "mountain", follow the map on here. Otherwise, it's a path through the Forrest that just gets you in circles.
Just okay, not very challenging, some hills but poorly maintained, not too interesting
great place to have an adventure.
Wear light pants if you go in the summer. The trail is narrow and full of plants. My legs got destroyed in shorts.
This is one of the better places to hike. There are a couple hills that were a nice challenge.
