Go Hiking In Romeoville

If you’re looking for something new to explore this weekend, there’s plenty to do near the Highpoint Community apartments for rent in Romeoville, IL. With so many city amenities in this area, you might think great terrain for hiking is too far away. However, it’s less than a 20-minute drive to the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve, one of the most highly ranked conservation areas in the region.

With almost 2,500 acres to explore, you’ll never run out of things to do at Waterfall Glen. Splash in the clear stream or explore the varied terrain. See the result of melting glaciers as you wander through bluff savannas, prairies, and woodlands. Don’t miss the oldest trees in the county while you’re here. Some are 215 years old! An incredible variety of wildlife also thrives in the preserve. 300 animal species and over 740 plant species coexist in the area. Look for frogs and salamanders in the shallow ponds on the prairie. Great opportunities for bird-watching and fishing are available as you explore this incredible park.

For those looking for more than just hiking, there’s plenty to do at Waterfall Glen. Bike the 11 miles of crushed limestone trails or watch hobbyists fly model airplanes in the open field. Borrow the free equipment from the visitor center to test your navigation skills at the orienteering course.

Whatever you decide to do, Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve is a stunning place to get outdoors. There’s always something to do near the HighPoint apartments in Romeoville, but when you need a break from your exciting city life, try Waterfall Glen. Contact us to learn more about the great apartment community at Highpoint.
