Herrick Lake Forest Preserve reviews
What a great place to take a walk and enjoy the wildlife and beauty that it has to offer. The grounds are very clean and the paths are easy to follow. My wife and I will continue to go back. more »
Visited Herrick Lake Forest Preserve in Wheaton a few times for hiking and bike riding in November. This forest preserve has a wide range of wonderful recreational opportunities. Options include... more »
Absolutely wonderful place for fishing, outdoor family gatherings, and very relaxing environment. I only wish the dock was maybe slightly larger and there were a few more clearings open along the lake to fish for when it is crowded, but not something I'd take a star away for. I'll be bringing my daughter here to fish for many years and likely create many lasting memories.
Decent crushed limestone trails, plenty of shade, and not too packed even on a beautiful day. Families tend to stay near the front of the preserve where the grills and picnic areas are located. Walkers, runners, and bikers can be found further in on the trails, but you're never fighting for space. I just wish they had some single track biking/running trails, then it would be perfect!
