Palos Park, Illinois Map

One Wheel XR

Only did 2 1/2 miles but very beautiful and very shaded

Wear bug spray. I think I fed half the mosquito population of Palos on our walk!

A good find in southern Illinois! Pleasantly surprised.

I had fun riding my bike here. People are nice. I will be back.

Great running trail; it was quite difficult for me. Very challenging especially with all the inclines.

Nice area to unwind and enjoy nature. The trail is maintained but very slippery in winter. Nothing complicated or technical skills needed, just a good pair of hiking boots and some water.

I have hiked sections of this trail multiple times, and this is the first time I did the whole loop. Great trail.

Enjoyed the beautiful hike with a few steep climbs. Looking forward to future walks here.

Fun trail, the gravel was very lose in many spots. I rode a trek ds 2 and I had a few issues keeping traction.

Decently marked trails. Even in wet weather, the trails don't get too muddy. Lots of equestrian activity.

I did the total yellow loop. Very nice trail, but be careful after heavy rain. It is clear that lots of parts flood after a storm. Give it a couple days and it will be ok. I went on a Sunday and traffic was low to none in some parts. Very nice interaction with trail runners, hikers, and horse riders. This trail must be very beautiful when foliage blooms in a month or so. I highly recommend it!

Nice trail make sure you wear boots if it's wet out.

Lovely trail

First time on this trail. More of a walking path than hiking trail. Well traveled by joggers, walkers and bikers. Good if your looking to get some miles in. Very urban

This is a lovely trail with little rivers and pretty scenery. There's hilly terrain and I went during the winter so parts of the trail were icy. I got lost trying to do the full loop. The trail can intersect with a nearby trail if you aren't paying attention. So I suggest using this app to stay on course.

Awesome!-started and ended at the stairs-115...cute little cafe with healthier snack choices. Definitely plan on coming back again. There was a good amount of people on the trail and quite an abundance on the stairs.
