Great trail! We’ve hiked this trail numerous times. It’s beautiful and we’ve seen eagles and blue herons on the bluff. Lots of deer and occasionally, a coyote or two. It’s surprisingly hilly for Illinois. It’s especially beautiful in the fall. One note - wear bug spray in the spring and summer, the woods in this area do have ticks. Be sure your dogs are also protected. It’s especially bad in the spring which is also when people are hunting for Morel mushrooms and you will run into more people this time of year.
