Once selected, you’ll want to scroll down to the bottom of the listing and download the hike. Each listing will show it’s file size, contingent upon how much audio and photo listings are found in the tour.


Now you’re on the way to enjoying your virtual hike! If you’re wanting to use it in-person, you’ll find directions on where to park and the best place to begin your tour. Each tour includes a map that displays your GPS location, and thorough directions to take you towards the next point of interest. You can use the ‘Previous Stop’ and ‘Next Stop’ to cycle through the points of interest. These tours provide more than just interpretive text, on several trails you’ll be treated to guided audio clips that give you park history, geological info and directions to your next site. Occasionally, you’ll also find video clips that show you seasonal park sites, like the arrival of bald eagles and the thrill of ice climbing. The Prairie State Conservation Coalition says more trails are coming soon, so stay tuned for future updates!
