Overview

This area is nice because it is a good spot to get some elevation changes in an otherwise flat Illinois. None of the hills are very high, just lots of quick elevation changing. There is a lot of singletrack, but also some wider paths that are generally flatter, which give you some time to rest and recharge, or warm up / cool down.

Need to Know

This park is used by mountain bikers so keep your eyes open. Watch out for mosquitos.

Description

Start out with a flat and wide track trail as a warm up, while you catch a great view of the Fox River. As you progress, the trail becomes more rugged and more fun. You'll swear you're on a roller coaster with the steep but short rolling hills.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of waterfowl in the standing pools of water. I also saw a muskrat.

History & Background

This land was once a strip mine, and a portion of it was a landfill as well.
