Hickory Hills, Illinois is known for being a quiet, rural area hidden in the forest. An interesting fact about this quaint city is that it's the hometown of US Army Colonel James Hickey, who was part of Operation Red Dawn, the military campaign which resulted in the capture of Saddam Hussein.

Apart from this unique claim to fame, Hickory Hills boasts plenty of places to enjoy nature with your best furry friend. While you're here, you'd be barking mad to miss Prairie View Park. There is a lot for the whole family to enjoy here! The half-mile paved walking trail winds around the perimeter of the park. There is a playground, restroom, and small picnic area here as well. 

Hickory Hills Woods is a little more remote than Prairie View Park. The walking paths go through the forests. Hidden back in the wooded trails are picnic areas. This quiet wooded area is the perfect place to rest and relax, and your dog will be fascinated by all the new sights and smells this beautiful forest has to offer!

    #1 Beck Lake

    Beck Lake is an off-leash area where you can take your dog to explore 40 acres. There is a pond, but you cannot swim or fish there. You can feed the ducks, though, so bring some duck-safe food, like uncooked oats, rice, or bird seed (not bread -- it's actually really harmful for them!). The trail system is nine miles long, and doesn't offer any amenities along the way, so you'll need to pack your own supplies, including water and doggie waste bags. You will need to register to play here. If you are just visiting, you can get a day pass. Make sure to keep your dog on a leash, and have a ball at Beck Lake!

    #5 Trantina Farms

    Trantina Farm Dog Park is a two-acre dog park. You'll have to register and pay an entrance fee to play at this off-leash dog park. There are two separate areas so that dogs can play with other dogs their own size. If your dog doesn't mind the leash, there is a trail that leads all the way around the area. This trail system is used by humans and horses as well. If your dog isn't used to horses, you may want to skip the trail. The human part of the park covers 30 acres and includes a wildlife viewing area. Dogs are allowed, but they must be on a leash.
