Busse Woods
Arlington Heights, IL-Busse Woods is one of eight bicycle trails in Chicago's Cook County and definitely one of the best. You'll be in and out of dark forests and open fields for most of the trail while patches of Busse Lake come and go. There are no hills-just winding pavementHiking Trails

Little Grand Canyon
Murphysboro, IL-Little Grand Canyon is a little-known hideaway that’s worth the drive from St. Louis. You’ll hike down stone steps cut in steep, fantastically-eroded slickrock chutes, into a moist bottomland guarded by 300-foot cliffs. Your reward for climbing out of the canyon’s depths is a panoramic view of the Mississippi River valley and the distant Missouri hillsHiking Trails

Deer Grove
Palatine, IL-While there is a paved bicycle trail in the forest preserve, the real excitement is on the cross-country ski trail. Even though this wide, 8.5-mile multiple-loop trail has paved sections, the majority of it is dirt. if you want even more exhilaration, you might explore the various dirt single-track spurs you'll find off the main trail. The single-track is narrower and hillier than the main trail. Hiking Trails

Des Plaines River Trail South
Lincolnshire, IL-Located off state highway 22 in Lincolnshire. Running parallel to the Des Plaines River for most of the route, this trail will give you an easy ride along its crushed gravel surface. You'll pass through woods, fields, and marshes with many views of the lazy Des Plaines RiverHiking Trails

Fults Hill Prairie Nature Preserve, Fults, IL -This place will make you stop to catch your breath—from both steep climbs on the trail, and expansive bluff views of the Mississippi River Valley. Falls Fults Hill is definitely not your typical prairie. Don’t expect the low swells of central Illinois or northern Missouri prairies in this nature preserve.Hiking Trails

Starved Rock State Park: Take a Hike
Utica, IL-Starved Rock, one of the state’s most popular attractions, now includes a complex that could compete with some of the best luxury resorts from Lake Geneva to Upper Michigan, and at a fraction of the price. Swimming is no longer relegated to some slippery riverbank; the lodge’s new wing, completed in 1989, offers an Olympic-size pool, flanked by whirlpool, sauna, and kiddie poolHiking Trails
