Added by The Outbound Collective

The Joliet Iron Works Historic Site Trail is a 1.3 mile loop trail that runs through what was once the second-largest steel mill in the U.S. The trail is flat, and great for all skill levels. The trail is open for dogs kept on leash.

The Joliet Iron Works Historic Site Trail is typically used for hiking, walking, and birding. If you want to amp up your hike, hop on the Illinois and Michigan Canal Trail, an 11 mile trail connecting the iron works to the Romeoville Prairie Nature Preserve.
