Fults Hill Prairie Nature Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"When you think of prairie lands, do you envision low hills and a sea of grass extending to the horizon? Come to Fults Hill and explore a hillside prairie. This place will make you stop to catch your breath—from both steep climbs on the trail and expansive bluff views of the Mississippi River Valley.

Fults Hill is definitely not your typical prairie. Don't expect the low swells of central Illinois or northern Missouri prairies in this nature preserve. This is a hillside prairie, and like other hill grasslands in Illinois, it survived only because it was too steep to farm. Fults Hill Prairie Nature Preserve is more than prairie too. Its diverse landscape includes forest, glades, and steep bluffs. Kidd Lake Marsh Natural Area, directly across Bluff Road from Fults Hill, adds a wetalnd landscape to the mix."

For a short, close to home trip, this trail did the trick, but there's not much to look at here and its obvious the trail is not heavily traveled. Made for a great quick hike, but for those looking for a bit more scenic hike, this would not be one for you.
