I rode several of the trails in and around Palos with a buddy of mine. While much of the terrain was challenging for Illinois, I found the trails to be in less than terrific shape and I really didn't think the area was particularly scenic. For my money and travel time from the Western suburbs I would rather drive another half hour and go to Rock Cut State Park.
