Ryerson Woods Hike Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The trails at Edward L. Ryerson Conservation Area—known informally as Ryerson Woods—wind through some of the most stunning forestland in the Chicago region. Along the shore of the Des Plaines River and its backwater, expect to see waterfowl, wildflowers, and old rustic cabins left behind by the families that once owned the property.
No pets, bicycling, or picnicking allowed. Visit brushwoodcenter.org to learn about the nature hikes, art classes, and other events offered at Ryerson Woods."
