Felt guilty spending so much time indoors shopping at the nearby Oakton Antiques Centre (they do have a.c. & cookies),so I drove over to the woods for some fresh air and sunshine. And to see the elk, of course! The trail was crowded with cyclists, skaters, joggers and walkers like me. While I enjoyed the paved trail, it was not for the looky-loo hiker. You need to be aware of others constantly, and this includes the parking areas.Bring plenty of water with you. I walked about 2.5 miles, and there was a large picnic area with a restroom. Turned around & walked back, trying to stay out of the way. I am used to the woods out by the Palos area, which are less crowded, but have to agree that this is a great place to hang out within the busy city.
