Accessible from the Des Plaines River Trail, Independence Grove is a marvelous year round destination. It has all you could ask for. Great paved and unpaved trails, fishing, boating, beach and food stand. I’ve even been to weddings here. Bike here from the trail, relax while you’re here, and continue on your way. A treasure not to be missed.

Beautiful all year round!

Amazing scenery and good
Place for fishing and running too! Love the geese!

nice trails that are pretty heavily used on the weekends. great for fall colors. i mainly use this for running hills "sled hill". killer workout

Easy running. Great scenery.

smaller dog excerise park but offers water, path, and open area.

Took the high trail and it was well maintained, paved and my little one could be pushed in his car all the way around! Great spot!

Dogs seem to love it and owners are all very respectful of the trail.

Good trail for young kids to get used to hiking. I've seen deer there with my sone a couple times around dusk.

It's a really nice trail with kids and dogs. Some of the trail tend to get flooded and even washed out in the spring if it's real wet or there was a lot of snow. The mosquitoes can be pretty bad if it does flood. Otherwise, it's a good hike. I've done it many times and only really had an issue with the mosquitoes one year.

Nice easy walk in the woods!

Really nice! $10 parking on weekends if you do not live in lake county but worth it. Also great prices on boat rentals.

Fantastic, really the best! Right along side the DesPlaines River Trail. Note: SKATING/BLADING....it doesn't get any better than this beautiful Lake County jewel of a forest preserve park, they come from miles around to skate the INCREDIBLE wide asphalt paths! Best I've ever see for skating except maybe Chicago's lake front park trails.

Very nice hiking trail around the lake

The dogs absolutely love it. There's water to play in and a field to run in. The trails are also very beautiful and well maintained.
