We hiked several of the smaller trails including Indian Creek Shelter, Post Oak Nature, Giant City Nature, and Devil's Standtable. I'm sure the rocks wouldn't be all that impressive to a mountaineer but they are fairly impressive for Illinois. The trails are short, well maintained and easy to hike.
Unfortunately, the loop trail around the park (Red Cedar Trail), along with Stonefort and Trillium are all closed due to ice damage from this past spring. I spoke with the Ranger and she wasn't sure when that section of the park might reopen. We had planned the loop trail for Sunday of our visit but had to go with plan B.
This is one of my favorite state parks in Illinois to visit and hike. Plenty of other trails in the region to make a longer trip out of it.
As for wildlife we observed several deer, too many gray squirrels to count, and a woodpecker or two.
