Trails

We continue to develop trails and clean up the land on the over 90 acres of land along the Rock River, Turtle Creek and Kelly Creek. Volunteers have been a big part of helping clear trail and pick up garbage and are always needed to help with clean ups and trail work. If you’re interested in being involved, please click here to email us. 

Our newest trail is the Rock River Birding and Hiking Trail located in the river bottom land. This trail offers a wonderful view of the Boney Island Eagle nest. Eagles have been raising young there for about 10 years. Two eaglets fledged in 2020. 

Continuing Trail Work – In 2020 we received a grant from Illinois American Water to continue our trail work and clean up along the south side of Kelly Creek in preparation for the new city park.
