Good hiking. Print trail map as it would be best to have one as some of the parking lots don't have any.

This will always be one of my favorite hikes. It's not too difficult, although if you want to go along the outer edges, it's a bit more hilly, but it's always beautiful and quiet no matter what time of year.

this is a decent trail with a couple of good uphill hill places and a pretty big uphill battle that when u get to the top will have a great view to see. and you can easily do more than the 3 or so miles it says I'm pretty sure if you take the right route you can get close to 7 or 8mi. possibly longer. there's flat, uphill, downhill, grass, gravel and dirt throughout. enjoy.

Great morning hike. After stopping at Off Broadway coffee shop in Richmond, we went over to Glacial Park and hiked a couple of miles. It was only about 40 degrees out and windy. However, it was a nice challenge having the baby backpack on. Good local preparation for my hike in the Smokey Mountains next month. For trails in Northern Illinois, I would say Glacial Park is an intermediate hike. There are alot of trails less challenging that's for sure

This park is beautiful. My favorite trail is a loop that is about 5 miles, it winds up a very steep hill and through lush forest. Great for a challenging trail run (especially if you are training for a Warrior Dash or Tough Mudder or something like that). It also doesn't have a lot of traffic, so it is a great trail to get away from everything.

I have ridden this trail from Crystal Lake, il. into Richmond, Il. And past and it has great scenery, low traffic, but the surface is a little rough.

The morning air was nice and cool so the bugs were low. We walked the cyote trail and it is 7.8 miles with two of my sons and it took 2.5 hours. Very nice scenes and very low traffic there. we had an excelent time.
