Hike the Twin Oaks and Bunker Field Trail

4.2 Miles Total - 85 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

The Twin Oaks and Bunker Field Trail is a 4.2 mile trail in Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie. The trail is good for all skill levels and families, and is great for seeing wildlife (bison!) and wildflowers.

The trail is open for use year-round, and is great for snowshoeing in winter months. This trail allows dogs, but please keep your dog on a leash throughout the duration to avoid disturbing the wonderful bison. 

Be weary of ticks - bring bug spray for you and your dog.
