Was a nice less than an hour walk with a dog but not so much shade. Pretty lake view.

I have been already to 80% of all forest preserves that have trails in Lake County. First time here, good lake, nice forested area and open landscape, more hiking on horse trail. One correction photo with boardwalk doesn’t belong here, this is mostly from Hasting Lake Forest Preserve.

This is an easy loop to hike. Not that much terrain. In early Spring it's not that scenic but may look better in Summer.

I love this trail! I go multiple times a week. It’s always quiet and I don’t usually run into a lot of people. The views are gorgeous and the scenery is breathtaking. For a small town in Northern IL you’ll feel like you’re on vacation!

Nice wide trails there are also several equestrian trails. The lake has two piers for fishing.
