This is a peaceful walk along the Salt Creek which features a 150 year old mill (Graue Mill).  

This is a six-mile loop along the banks of the Salt Creek in Oakbrook, IL. The flat trail features trees and wildflowers (great walk to do in autumn). Trail is also good for bike riders.

It's easy and calming. The mill house is full of historic value.
