The Magnificent Overlook In Illinois That’s Worthy Of A Little Adventure

There aren’t too many hikes in the Prairie State that have a high elevation gain; after all, the state’s highest point is Charles Mound at 1,235 feet. However, there are a few hikes with a little bit of elevation that lead to magnificent overlooks. One such hike is the Inspiration Point Trail located within the Shawnee National Forest, where you will be treated to impressive views at the top.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
