Hike Lake County at Lake County Forest Preserves

Like to hike? Take the Hike Lake County challenge! Enjoy fall breezes and autumn colors while exploring trails at preserves across the county. Look for the Hike Lake County logo at the trailhead of each participating preserve to get started on the right route.

How It Works:

  1. Download a Travel Log to record each hike. Every hiker needs their own.
  1. Complete seven of the designated "Hike Lake County" trails between August 15 and November 30.
  2. Submit your Travel Log online or by mail by January 31, 2023, to earn a commemorative medallion.

Please note that bicycling and horseback riding do not count toward this program.

Once you complete your Hike Lake County Challenge, choose from one of the commemorative medallions, while supplies last.


Hiking sticks, and Golden Guide Books are available at the Dunn Museum or Ryerson Welcome Center.

Thank you for participating in the 2022 Hike Lake County program! We love to read your notes and hear about your experiences exploring this year's trails.
