Great for a fall walk through the leaves. Not very large area but great for walking the dogs!

I grew up in the area, but did not know this existed. I took my 7 year old daughter on a one hour hike. The woods are beautiful! The trail is easy, with boardwalks and bridges over uneven terrain. Saw two small groups of deer. Clean, quiet and well cared for. A hidden treasure in the south suburbs. One bridge is out, so you can't walk the full loop. We went mostly around and then doubled back.

I enjoyed this trail was very nice on your feet

I enjoyed the trail due to the inclines and soft ground. Only went 1.5 miles the bridge was out due to flooding but of course I pressed on anyway.
