Beautiful with some nice variety of terrain.

Downside--it takes lots of loops to get any real mileage (see NRC pic). Despite cutter, several mosquito bites, no ticks seen. Upside--Saw a couple of deer, loads of butterflies, bunnies. Pretty quiet, couple of dog walkers.

For Illinois this is a pretty good trail. A few hills, several ponds, large prairie, and a nice forest. Bring bug spray. Every time I have been here my dog gets lots of ticks!!! So be careful and inspect yourself & your pet after your hike!
