Hace poco estuve allí con mi esposa y pasé unos días maravillosos. El lugar es precioso para pasear tranquilamente y perderte entre la naturaleza.

been here a lot, nice short hike but slippery talus slope to the point, just past the 2x4 handrail. Rangers probably prefer you do not find it as it could be dangerous. Second best view in Illinois. Nice animals, garter snake and vultures, go in the winter for no ticks. We hauled out a few trash items and left it very clean. Suggest that you save the flip-flops for your cool pool party as the trail has no doubt caught a few people by surprise, easy walk with difficult slope to point.

Very secluded with the well traveled river to river trail as the main route. Scenic view of Cedar Lake near the 1/4 mile mark, winter is probably your only chance as there are a lot of trees. Muddy horse trail, steep winding trails, well marked, no trash, rocky trail and small outcrops of sandstone, no people. Rain would make the creeks difficult.

Spectacular views, intense elevation climb, must see to believe, no ticks in January! So special that you will go back. Try to find the 1880 plow with trees grown thru it. Wow, best views in Illinois

Spectacular, not for the short of breath, because it is breathtaking. If you don't like this, pick up your trash and visit the mall. Look for the 1895 plow grown into the trees, bring water and there are no ticks in January. Spectacular!
