Hike Indian Hill Forest Preserve

Indian Hill Forest Preserve
Entrance at 7061 Kishwaukee Road, Rockford, IL
1.7 miles of mowed trail

Indian Hill forest preserve holds an alluring little shady woodland trail just long enough to stretch your legs and relax your mind. The 1.75 mile trail starts off with a few hills some twists and turns, but is primarily flat and wide. On your hike you will discover a handful of mature oak trees, so beautiful and statuesque they ask you to stop and stare. There is a quick loop off the trail that goes to a high bluff overlooking dense forest and floodplain about fifty feet down, and a bench for you to sit and enjoy this unique view. The rest of the trail walks through walnut tree plantation, and a tall white pine forest that allows the sun to peek in through their skinny pine needles. Indian Hill is a favorite for an easy, yet very visually engaging hike through some of Winnebago counties’ most picturesque woodlands.
