Well maintained trail that passes through a forest preserve (though there aren't many trees), by a river, and through some prairie areas. At each end of the trail there are outlooks with views of the Fox River (at the north end) and Grassy Lake (at the south-east end). The parking area is near the middle of the trail, so you can opt to hike just one side of the trail
