First time visitor! As many mention - not real crowded- trail #2 was really challenging and fun - probably not for small children more »
Very laid back and every time I’ve gone there hasn’t been a lot of people. Most of the trails are rather short so you can definitely bust the park out in a day but the trails are pleasant and somewhat challenging in a few spots. Definitely worth visiting if you’re within a few hour drive.
A beautiful State Park. While Starved Rock is more well know, it's also more crowded. This is a great hidden gem! Be ready for a LOT of stairs and if willing some rugged trails with ladders and hiking stream beds. I highly recommend!
