You Will See The Most Interesting Rock Formations Along The Whiskey Cave Trail In Illinois

Garden of the Gods Wilderness is as scenic as it gets in Illinois. This 3,300-acre preserve has some of the most fascinating sandstone rock formations, so it’s no wonder why it’s the most photographed part of the state. There are a number of trails throughout the park and the Whiskey Cave Loop Trail is one that will lead you to the numerous rocks, caves, a waterfall, and epic viewpoints of the surrounding wilderness. We must warn you, though, that this is a difficult hike and being prepared is an absolute necessity.

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.
