Pilcher Park Loop Trail is a 2.3 mile loop trail located near Joliet, Illinois that features a great forest setting. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and nature trips.
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.
