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!
