Willow Springs, Illinois

Trail Run at Cemetery Hill

2 Miles Total - 100 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Michael

If you are tired of running or biking the flat terrain around the concrete jungle of Chicago just jump in your car for the 30 minute ride to the Palos Forest Preserve of Cook County. You will not be disappointed.

Just outside of Chicago the Palos Region of the Cook County Forest Preserve offers a few thousand acres of dirt single track and limestone paths. Here you will find rolling hills and bluff that will rev up your hill workouts.

This single track loop is great for mountain biking and trail running. You can access the trail by parking in the Maple Lake East parking lot and finding the trailhead right next to the cemetery. This is clearly how the trail got its name.
