River Trail Nature Center Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Looking for a perfect family outdoor experience with your kids? Look no further. These quiet woods on the banks of the Des Plaines River house a quaint, lively nature center filled with interactive exhibits and a variety of local wildlife. The site sponsors numerous family-oriented events throughout the year, like the immensely popular Fall Festival in October and syrup-making demonstrations. This walk on one of the gentle, well-maintained trails that thread through the surrounding sugar maples is a great way to spend a few hours with your family outdoors."
