  • Did the Lower Cache Canoe Trail and it was an amazing time. It's like having a little Bayou in the back yard. Trail was well marked with arrows. Some markers are pretty faded.

  • Loved it. Make sure to carry bug repellent in the summertime.
  • Top notch area to visit. The only Bayou in Illinois. You will see tons of wild life here, just remember to respect any animals you come across on the trails. Snakes, salamanders, lizards, turtles all are to be respected and left unharmed. If you see a snake, just walk around it. This Herons Pond area has the best maintained trails that I have ever hiked. They are actually out cutting branches that might hit people in the face.
