Note my rating is relative to the area, not to all hiking or trails I've been on. I took a 90-minute hike around Wildcat Den State Park and was immensely surprised and delighted by the sights along the way. Portions of wooded cliffs, jagged sandstone formations, pine groves, and open areas adjacent to farmlands. The cliffs and rock formations were definitely the highlight, though all throughout the trail was wide, clear, and unpaved (a huge plus coming from Chicago). The trails are not too well marked, but considering the size of the area, it's hard to get lost. My wife and I took our own route, as opposed to this trail listing, and probably had a solid 5-mile hike given our pace. The old mill and schoolhouse were nice sights as well, we'd like to come back at a time when they're open for tours.
