Shoe Factory Road Woods Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the quietest and most isolated spots in all of Chicagoland, Poplar Creek is literally teeming with flora and fauna. But the woods surrounding Shoe Factory Road are also an ominous centerpiece in Illinois folklore, because of two supposedly “haunted” structures that once stood nearby. Today, several wide trails skirt the perimeters of peaceful prairies where countless wildflowers blossom every summer. On the gentle trail featured here, you can explore stone ruins in dark patches of forest and watch songbirds frolic in bright, exposed grasslands."
