Best Hiking Trails in Illinois Beach State Park

Best Hiking Trails in Illinois Beach State Park

The park's many trails take hikers through a charming landscape with views of wetlands, woodlands, dunes, and prairies. Illinois Beach State Park cabins are a great base from which to take advantage of the park's ample hiking opportunities for visitors of all levels.

  • 1. Dead River Trail

    This 2.2.mi. trail in the park's south unit is mostly gravel, and one of the narrowest trails in the park. It passes through wetlands, between a dune area and the so-called dead river, a stream surrounded by sandbars.

  • 2. The Inland Trail

    This sparsely-visited trail in the north unit extends through a wooded stretch, so it's an ideal option for a leisurely walk. The park's beaches also offer some of the best hiking and walking opportunities here.

  • 3. The Dunes Trail

    Only accessible by foot traffic, bikes were allowed on this trail in the past, but at present, only hiking is allowed. You can also access the beach from this trail.
