This One Easy Hike In Illinois Will Lead You Someplace Unforgettable

When the weather starts to get nice, we want to get out and commune with nature. But we might not be in super great shape after the winter. So get those hiking legs warmed up with a nice and easy trail. An easy hike doesn’t need to be boring! You can see all sorts of beautiful stuff without having to be in super great shape.

Why not go to Giant City State Park? You will be in awe of the incredible rock formations that were forged some 12,000 years ago. There are several trails here for you to explore. Other than the 12 mile Red Cedar Hiking Trail, the rest are fine for people of more limited abilities. The Post Oak Trail is actually designed for disabled visitors. You’ll actually be more wowed by the sights on the easier trails. The Giant City Nature Trail, which is only a mile long, gives you a lot of bang for your buck. If you’re looking for something slightly longer, try the Trillium Trail. It’s a 2 mile long trail that spotlights wildflowers.

Have you ever taken a hike on this trail?
