Great easy trail to get outside for a quick hike. Was a little muddy but not too bad. Flat and grassy with a couple overlooks. Saw a really big hawk!

A real favorite. Flat prairie trail instead of woods and hills. Name we saw was Springfield Bog. Lots of flowers and a few observation decks. Go here often.

This is a nice historical trail that has come a long way in the past few years. The section from the parking lot along the road to the pond observation deck is fairly short (half a mile there, half a mile back) and very flat and grassy, so it would be good for those who have health problems or very young children and can't walk too far or deal with elevation changes. I don't think it could handle a wheel chair though, as it's not paved.

Nice, easy walk if you're looking for a short hike. Beautiful in late summer and autumn. Make sure to take the path to the pond in the center of the field (to the left if you're traveling counterclockwise).
