Definitely a must when visiting Starved Rock. Although the furthest trail from the Lodge and Visitor Center it provides an escape from the noisy and busy trails and lets you experience Starved Rock as it should be, while also being one of the best waterfalls and canyons in the Park. If you’re not up for the long hike from the Visitor Center, hop in your car and take Route 71 all the way down where there’s a parking lot that will lead you straight on to the trailhead!
