Beautiful. Lots and lots of stairs so not recommending for those with small dogs. Bald eagles everywhere. In my opinion, Starved Rock is the best hiking I've found in our flat state of IL

I'm a sucker for waterfalls, absolutely gorgeous, never would think such beauty is in IL. I go back every year, you just can't get enough of all the falls! Pet friendly too!

Lots of elevation changes on this trail. Lots of stairs in spots. Excellent views from various points along trail. Can see lots of wildlife as well.

This is steep at times getting down to the fall, slick from moss, nice swimming if there is water

Rare trail for Illinois. Nice overlooks and canyons. Recommend as a destination. Also Buffalo Rock and Matthiessen state parks are must to round out the trip.
