Lyman Woods Forest Preserve has enough interconnected trails to create a nice walk. There's a mixture of wooded trails and wetlands boardwalks. On this January day everything was covered in several inches of snow but this would be extraordinarily nice when all the wetland wildlife is visible. The woods must be home to a number of deer as there were fresh tracks on all the trails. I will definitely be back here.

Great nature sounds and views for being tucked away in a burn. Always light drone of the road however.

This place is fantastic. Not as crowded as other places, well maintained trail and boardwalk, good birding, good signage, and good times.

Great trail! Only a few spots were hard to get the stroller through. It was fun seeing the different wildlife.

This hike is perfect if you search for something what is not very crowded. It has a very beautiful scenery and the nature looks untouched.

Trail was closed at two points, and the path itself was pretty inconsistent. some overgrown grass, a few mud spots, then dirt, then some stones. That said there is a beautiful overlook at the southeast end by a lake (which I dont think you can get too). Got a close up of a blue jay as well.

Walked with a jogging stroller. Ended up carrying the stroller a lot due to lots of mud and flooding.

Great trail. We enjoyed the way it covers three ecosystems in a short hike.
