These trails are well maintained with very light traffic. There are three trails in the park; an 8.5 mile Equestrian trail, a 3.5 mile nature trail, and a 4.5 mile out and back hiking trail. The trails are wide and well maintained with a host of wildlife to be seen. It is a nice trail for leasure or day hiking.Layla E.

But Fox run is more challenging.Kyle Pacatte (3592)2 years ago50 Completed44 ReviewsNice park located in south central IL.
