Nice Hike. Easy and doesn't take too long to complete. The Track is well maintained, though I wish there wasn't so much noice from the traffic.

Amazing escape from reality. Even with it's close proximity to 88 it is a tranquil and serene environment filled with well kept trails and scenery.

My favorite place in Illinois. I can't believe that I haven't heard of it before. So much variety and well kept. Will definitely try to go back every season.

I have hiked this trail many times in all seasons. I discover something new and amazing every time. The Arboretum is a tranquil slice of paradise. On the far east side of the hike you forget you are in a vast metropolitan area.

Gorgeous all year but especially in the fall. Mostly trees and a few flowers along with some prairie flora. A few ducks, geese, some rabbits, and various birds make up the fauna. Not too expensive to get in and well worth it. Great for families!

If you have your camera with you, the West Trail offers better scenic views than the East Trail. Not many animals or flowers, tons of trees. We will definitely do it again in October. With so many gorgeous trees, I can't wait to see the fall colors.
Bring a water bottle with you. Once there, water it is only available at the visitor center, and a 250ml bottle costs $4.00.
