Lookout Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike takes place at Rock Springs Conservation Area. You will enjoy Central Illinois human and natural history on this shorter trek. First visit the Trobaugh-Good House, a historic antebellum prairie homestead. Learn a little bit about life in pre–Civil War Illinois. The Lookout Trail next takes you through a prairie. Walk through native grasses on roll- ing hills before returning to full-blown woodland. The final part of the hike leads to a small stream in deep woods before returning to the trailhead. The conservation area has other trails and facilities that will enhance your visit."
