Kaskaskian trail is an easy, flat trail through a mixture of forest and prairie areas. The southern half of the trail needed some cleanup and trimming, but nothing extreme. There were some beautiful wildflowers, butterflies and lots of mushrooms along the trail. I was kind of late to see much in the way of wildlife, but the park has a large herd of white tail deer that are easy to see in the early morning and evening and I did see several tracks.
