    Garden of the Gods, Harrisburg, Illinois

    Well maintained and perfect for the family. Decent loop for a leisurely stroll but also lots rocks and outcroppings to explore. Of course people take time to check out the wonderful scenary

  • 2. Panther's Den

    Similar to Giant City but requires a hike, less people and well worth your time. More fun for those seeking an adventure.

  • 3. Giant City State Park
    Giant City State Park, Makanda, Illinois

    Fantastic state park for everyone to hike the short loop. Interesting rock formations to amaze young and old alike.

  • 4. Little Grand Canyon

    A fun hike when there's not as much water. The "canyon" is actual tiny but quite fun to hike through. The whole loop might be long and definitely tiring going uphill.
