Love this place. it also attaches to other trails and is great on a hott day to stay out of the sun. It's so peaceful!

the reviews and easy rating are true. can't really go off the beaten/paved path. too easy for me and my doggo, but probably perfect for families with small children.

Good easy trail. First half is paved then you go to dirt once you hit the greenhouse.

This area pleasantly surprised us. The path is well maintained and the nature center provides lots of activities for kids and families. The greenhouse is also a nice stop.

Nature center and greenhouse are great, so is the driver through. One of our favorite places to walk.

Intermittent maps and colored posts were helpful as to not get lost. Too manicured for my taste when I would have liked to feel more removed from humanity.

Pilcher Park is a great place for families. They have the hiking trails, the Nature Center, water for fishing, picnic areas, as well as kids play areas. You can also check out upcoming events via Joliet Park District. Best time is early summer for frog and turtle viewing and fall for obvious reasons.
