  • I hiked the orange and yellow trails here. It’s a good mix of prairie and woods. Definitely not a place to go for solitude. While I didn’t pass anyone on the trails there were many campers and fishers. There is also communication towers nearby, a constant reminder of man’s presence and an eyesore sculpture in one of the prairie areas. I even heard a marching band practicing for a while. I did find a lot of wildlife in the area which was nice though the mud in spring was pretty deep in places and I wished I had worn boots.
  • In my top three metro parks for taking a long walk. Varied environments (wooded, prairie, along little fishing ponds). Scared up a deer, a hawk, saw a ton of butterflies and dragonflies. Saw almost no other folks on the trails, despite going on a weather-perfect late summer weekend. Pretty wet in the spring, but peaceful. Great year round.
