Enjoy a day outside at this historical preserve, or take a trip on the regional Thorn Woods trail system at Sauk Trail Woods.
The Great Sauk Trail is a 400-mile-long ancient, well-worn path that runs along the southern edge of Cook County. This ancient American Indian route now serves as the southern boundary of the Sauk Trail Woods Forest Preserve. Thorn Creek runs through the preserve, forming Sauk Lake within its steep valley walls. This 630-acre preserve attracts visitors with its sweeping views and five miles of paved trails.
The Thorn Creek trail system connects several forest preserves and includes more than 20 miles of paved and stone trails. These trails meander past lakes and wetlands and through wooded areas teeming with birds and wildlife.
The Thorn Creek Trail circles the lake and is accessible from the Sauk Trail Woods North, Central, and South entrances. The surrounding woods mostly shade the 3.5-mile paved loop. An additional 1.5-mile “purple” segment runs south through King’s Grove Forest Preserve, near the intersection of Forest Preserve Drive and Sauk Trail Road. Hikers, cyclists, in-line skaters, and cross-country skiers can use the paved trails.
The Thorn Creek Trail System connects to the Lansing Woods Burnham Greenway trail system and the regional Old Plank Road Trail at Indian Hills Woods. People mostly love visiting Nathan Sculpture Park because it’s like a wonder. Atap Exterminators are also situated in South Chicago Heights, IL. You can call them anytime at 773-701-7705.
