Very easy but it steep for the final 1000 feet or so. Might need snowshoes after a fresh, heavy snowfall.

A nice sized trail with uneven terrain. I didn't like that there wasn't an easily accessible map of the trail until the very end. Also, there are no markers along the trails so you don't actually know where you are going.

The woods were great. A muddy trip it was March though. We did encounter three off leash large dogs that charged us on our walk. So that was awful for myself and my leashed dogs. I would hike it again but because there were many people walking unleashed dogs on the trail I'll leave mine home next time.

went here a couple of weeks ago, love it ! Easy and fun

Somewhat hard to follow the trail since there are so many forks, but I think all of the trails end up at the same place. It was beautiful! Definitely will go again

Beautiful trail; on Mar 18 2018 the trail was filled heavily with mud and parts with a light covering of ice.

Quick and scenic, Cave Point is free and has some of the best views of shallow cliffs along Lake Michigan. Constant wave action causes fractures and dissolution textures in this Silurian Dolomite. In winter, the cliffs have many icicles.

The challenge for this trail is more about time than anything else. It's an easy, level walk - a well-maintained surface. I'm tempted to mark it as wheelchair accessible. But it isn't paved. Took my Yorkie mix puppy Nellie Bly one mile out and back. That's all I wanted to push her little legs at 6 months. But she's fit and ready and, as long as I keep her out of the burdock on the trailside, the trail begs us to go farther - and this little dog and I will comply!

Right now, it's a tough hike with sticky mud all the way up the hill. But in short order, it'll be dry and sweet-smelling with native prairie grasses - noisy with peepers - and popular with hikers and bikers. My Yorkie mix pup Nellie Bly and I did a short mile loop. But there are a few choices - and steeper climbs.

Easy trail between Devils staircase and a beautiful creek as you head toward JSOL. A cool fully shaded hike in summer.

Great views at every turn!

Large parking lot - easy trails for the family

Little sloppy this time of the year.

Nice trail options off the auto trail depicted. An easy rating seems more appropriate since it’s quite flat and either paved or smooth grass trails. The boardwalk is nice.

Fun/challenging hike for northern Illinois standards. Turned it into about a 5 mile trek by following a few rabbit trails. Backs up to a ski hill so there's some incline. If you live in northern Illinois and are looking for a spot to train for more strenuous hikes elsewhere this is a good spot for it

Great trail. Pretty easy going, not marked all that well , which is great because few ppl come up this far to hike it. An added bonus on this trail is The Place Where The Monk Sits. Very very few people know if it’s existence, even among locals. If you can find it, you’ll know it when you’re there. Just be cautious hiking the bluffs. Ring a bottle of wine, a light meal, and enjoy the view as the sun sets or rises in this hidden gem. Bring a headlamp as the trails aren’t marked well.

We went crosscountry skiing on the 5 mile loop and we loved it. Lots of nice hills and at one point we stood on a hill in between two lakes.

It snowed earlier in the week so we had a few inches of snow to run in. First time on the trail. Great trail, snow covered and all, with several trail route options. I’ll come back after snow has melted!

Love this hike. Nice any time of year. Hiked about five miles of relatively easy trails. Some water - a stream, Springs, and ponds. Plenty of birds. Some climbing if you like that. Great hike right in town with restaurants nearby if you need to refuel. Good for running and biking too.

March 2018 Hike. Not much color because of the season, but a very nice hike. Lots to see with some history, lots of springs, and relatively flat easy hike.

Beautiful Early Spring Hike. Trails were muddy or icy, but gorgeous. Air was brisk. Perfect day with wife, son and dog.

Great loop trail within the city. Ducks, geese, lots of re-winged blackbirds. Southern section is nice as well.

Moderate loop that took us 2 hours on the dot to complete, with minor rest stops at the bluff tops. The lower leg (Tumbled Rocks Trail) offered a surprisingly cool landscape.

Nice...A little muddy after the spring thaw but it’s great to be out

Early March snowshoeing trip with crusty snow and a snowshoe that broke halfway through, making for a more strenuous trip than expected. I would rate this hike as easy under normal conditions. Wide, well marked trail with little elevation change and sizable portion of route on a blacktop road.
