Escape To Cache River Natural Area For A Beautiful Illinois Nature Scene

In the southernmost part of the state lies the Cache River State Natural Area filled with wetlands and ancient trees. It’s a scenic place to visit, hike along the trails, and be amazed by the beautiful natural diversity here. With four notable ecological systems, you may notice the diversity of the landscape, plants, and wildlife on your visit. Let’s have a look.
