If you are looking for a scenic road trip, here is one leading to the tallest falls in Illinois. You’ll notice that there are several grouped together, from two that are close to each other up north within Starved Rock State Park and a few that are close together in the south around Shawnee National Forest. This trip can easily be split up into two days. You can use this link to view the interactive Google map and add any stops you would like to make along the way.
