An observation deck offers a 360 degree view of the preserve's dramatic landscape, which has been undergoing habitat restoration for more than 10 years, as well as views of Lake Michigan and adjoining natural areas. 

Trail and Observation Deck

Thanks to an Open Space Land Acquisition and Development Program Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, we were able to convert an existing asphalt roadway into a 0.7-mile recreational trail. The trail here connects to existing trails at adjacent Illinois Beach State Park via the 7th Street bike lanes. 

The grant project also provided for a wildlife education and observation deck and ongoing habitat restoration work within the preserve.
