This is a small but nice little trail and my dog seems to love it so we go to it every now and then since it’s close to home. It’s a pretty trail if you like wildflowers and right now the wild geraniums smell wonderful

I grew up going to this trail and just visited again last week. Absolutely beautiful, well-maintained, and quiet. Lots of ducks and their ducklings this time of year, which was fun to see. Not a lot of leaves on the trees yet but that just meant there was a lot of sun :)

Good Rout. Some area do become off-road. Very nice and a long ride....

Great escape nearby.

Narrow path through woods with wildflowers & foliage throughout, connects to Danada-Herrick regional trail and is super close to the equestrian center. Because paths are so narrow you get a different feel than on the wider trails, felt more like being in the woods!

quiet, easy to reach. narrow trail, with some elevation. no bikes or horses allowed back here. Summer growth can encroach on the narrow trail, so expect some trouble with shorts on.

big , open and easy to follow the different trails

this is the most scenic branch of the Illinois Prarie Path.

Wide open crushed gravel

Just a nice and VERY well kept getaway near downtown Wheaton. Has wheelchair accessibility, all the paths are woodchips or wooden paths (think it's actually some type of plastic made to look like wood). Has some cool piers that go way out on the marshes and have benches on them. The place is teaming with robins and frogs but saw a few types of ducks, beaver, turtles, cardinal, indigo bunting, swamp sparrow, and a few others.. was very alive. Also has some kind of team courses, not completely sure what they are about, they are off limits without an instructor. Did see a large rock wall and many other types of obstacles in there. Easy trails, great place for a short nature walk.

Great place for picnics and nature walks. Trails aren't very long but connect to much longer trails that continue out of the park. There's many places with tables and benches to sit around and enjoy the surrounding. As well as pavilions and old barns and such. Was lots of signs with info about them... I'm sure that interests some people. Hear they do all kinds of events here too. Is a lovely place.

Nice, well kept trail. Crushed rock. Was crowded but i went on Sunday around 2:30 so, my own fault. There were a decent amount of other runners/walkers but the majority of people were riding bikes. Lots of beautiful views going from prairie to marshy to forest.

I ended up getting lost at this trail. But it was my very first trail run so I had to learn how to read trail maps and colors. And pay attention to the turns. Other than that. It was great. I was only going to run 9 miles and needed up running 14.21 because I got lost. Oops. Enjoy!
