Hike at Goose Lake Prairie Trail

  • Goose Lake Prairie State Natural Area

    5010 N Jugtown Rd, Morris, IL (map)

    41.346212 -88.325159

  • The trail loops around to a couple other trails. There are great views at the top of hills and nature abounds! I plan to get 10 miles in with hitting the hills a couple times. Everyone should feel comfortable with their own pace and preferred distance. I will be hiking at a brisk 4 miles per hour.

    Most of the trail is dry, but the times I have been there did require walking through a few parts of the trail that were covered in a few inches of water.  You may want to consider that when choosing your shoes.

    Please bring:

    Drinking water and snacks

    Bug Spray

    A good attitude

    Decent walking /hiking shoes (maybe water proof??)

    Dress in comfortable layers and according to weather forecast

    Take I-55, South of the Kankakee River; take Lorenzo Road West 6 1/2 miles. Turn north on Jugtown Rd. Watch for Park Sign. Continue on to the Visitor center after making a right at the stop sign.

    I think you will enjoy it if you haven't been there before AND if you have!
