Illinois: Old School Forest Preserve
Posted on Thursday, June 08 @ 03:13:35 MST by iljiana

Horse Rentals & Day Ride Trails vlado writes "The entrance and parking area are located on St. Mary's Road just south of Route 176, and north of Route 60 (Townline Road).
Libertyville, IL
Lake County

One of Lake County's most popular forest preserves, Old School offers miles of trails, great bass fishing and secluded picnic spots in the heart of Lake County.

A 3-mile crushed-gravel loop explores Old School's woods and prairies and is open to hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders and cross-country skiers. A portion of this loop is part of the Des Plaines River Trail. A 1.5-mile crushed-gravel loop encircles the lake and is open to hikers, bicyclists and cross-county skiers. The 1.5-mile asphalt road winding through the Preserve offers a special one-way lane popular with bicyclists and in-line skaters.

The Des Plaines River Trail winds through this Preserve and is open to hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders and cross-country skiers. From Old School you can make your way south through three other Forest Preserves without crossing any major roads.

Large oaks dominate these woodlands that blend with small prairies. This landscape resembles what Lake County looked like when it was first settled. Bluebirds, foxes and screech owls are just a few of the animals living here.

With a great deal of help from volunteers, much work has gone into restoring Old School's prairie. Time one of your visits to coincide with the August peak of prairie wildflower blooming. You'll be treated to a rainbow of colors, ranging from golden alexanders to purple milkweed. For more information:(847) 367-6640"
