Walk Across A 75-Foot Suspension Bridge On Kankakee River Trail In Illinois

Kankakee River State Park is located near the village of Bourbonnais in Kankakee County just south of Chicago. With 4,000 acres spanning across both sides of the Kankakee River, the park is open to many recreational activities throughout the year including hiking, biking, fishing, cross-country skiing, camping, boating, horseback riding, and more. It’s quite a scenic destination with trails that are accessible for both strollers and wheelchairs, canyons, a river, and a suspension bridge that spans across a creek.
