We're not super athletic and are more used to flat terrain in the suburbs of Chicago. I see the reviews mention easy but actually for us the hills gave us a good run for the money (a bit challenging and a fantastic workout). Very scenic, some trails rough gravel but most are good compacted crushed limestone. Suzanne St John (1280) almost 2 years ago N/A: 12 Completed 8 Reviews Wonderful area to go hiking. Well maintained. Rent a boat but the Chain is big so get one with w motor. Bring lunch and great company .....
