Chicago: Waterfall Glen

IL

Star Star Star

Distance: 8.5 miles


This preserve offers plenty of big city escape. Shady forests, gentle waterfalls, and a lofty vista over the Des Plaines River are just a few stops along this 10.1-mile multi-use loop.

I've hiked waterfall glen 10 times and there is nothing like that picture within 100 miles of here. lol. Mountains and alpine lakes? I think not.
The trail is crushed stone and nice enough. Watch out for mountain bikers. It's busy on the weekends.
