The Starved Rock and Sandstone Point Overlook Trail is a 4.4 mile loop. The trail features views of the river valley, and is well known as a great spot for seeing eagles and other birds!

The trail is paved with lots of steps, so it is accessible for a variety of skill levels. This trail is great for hiking, and the park features spots for picnicking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, and camping. 

This trail is just outside of Oglesby, Illinois. Great for school aged kids. Dogs are allowed on trail if kept on leash. Get there early in the fall, as this trail becomes crowded with people eager to see the colorful leaves!
