The new trail has been around for only two years, erected along with a new parking area on the northwestern corner of the park along the road, where people can access the wood-chipped terrain to explore the area. When you enter the park, you'll be met with the sound of chirping and singing from natural birds that nest here. Fido will have to remain on a leash due to the wildlife, but the peaceful and quiet surroundings of the trail will make it worth it to explore even on a leash.
While walking through the trail, you'll see vast views of where the park expands. The area encompasses more than 278 acres of land, covering natural beaches, wetlands, grasslands, and streams. The wood-chipped trail only explores the northern 35 acres, but still offers a few benches along the way so you and Fido can sit and enjoy the wildlife and natural habitats found here. After reaching the end of the trail, you'll see the moss-covered water before having to turn around to get back to the parking area.
There are plans in the future to expand the walking and bike trails in the region, but for now you and Fido will have to make due with the gorgeous and wall-maintained trail that shows off how natural the city of Chicago can be.
