Starved Rock State Park
Last week, I was able to sneak in an afternoon visit to Illinois’ Starved Rock State Park. I visited three of their overlooks – Starved Rock, Lover’s Leap and Eagle Cliff. All were amazing, especially with the vivid fall colors.
Most impressive though was the very intricate “trail” system they had. It was almost all wooden walkways, stairs and elaborate decking. The fact they built all that is amazing enough, but the fact that they can maintain it all and keep the park completely FREE is incredible. Kudos to you, State of Illinois.
