nice wooded path, great for light cyclocross or MTB. some loam on some areas but a nice easy ride. i rum it with a SS 24" DJ no problem my park tires were fine if you look out for wash out.

I don't think I would have rated as moderate, seems better suited for a biking trail. It was a nice walk with some short trails that brought you to a couple of overlooks.

Hiked 11 miles, started the timer a little late. Did a little stopping and exploring. Overall it wasn't too bad, ok for hiking. I prefer a little more sites to see along the way.it was a gravel and some pavement trail A little bit in the woods.would be a Great trail for biking or running.

There is so much to do at the K3 State Park! Everything from hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, you name it. Some of the best trails are the ones made for hunters. Do not go on these trails during hunting season though as they are clearly posted to stay on paved trail only!! I hiked many trails and well just through the woods to get to hunting spots and it is very beautiful here. Trails are fairly easy as I bring my daughter with me and she loves it. Some areas to get down to the river on the Will county side can be a bit tricky if your carrying fishing gear or have young ones. Not crowded at all and very nice area. I got almost 3-4 times a month from April til December and then maybe 2 times a month in the winter.

I got about 3 miles out from Davis Creek (the southern start/end) and it was kind of a boring run/hike. No real views of the river. Then i got back to the car and went to the actual Kankakee River state park. That's were things get amazing. Great views, great trail, tons of parking, outlooks, bridges, fishing, exploring. Great time.
