Hoot Owl Trail is a 1.4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Timewell, Illinois that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
This is a trail that simply goes up a ridge through hardwood forest and loops around the steep gully and back down the other side of the gully. The trail is poorly maintained but it is nice for somebody who just wants a quick jaunt through the woods. I found a nice sulfur shelf mushroom at the top and a few "hen of the woods" at the bottom.
