This long suburban trail offers a surprising array of scenic spots. You’ll see cattail fringed ponds, patches of prairie, numerous parks, and small suburban towns with quiet, wooded neighborhoods. At about the halfway point you’ll take a side trail through Hickory Creek Forest Preserve, where the route bounds over wooded hills and makes a couple of crossings of Hickory Creek. In the town of Frankfort, check out the historic architecture and the interesting shops before investigating several good dining options.
