Fults Hill Prairie Preserve

If you don’t know about this place, you should! Hidden away on the top of a bluff is a hillside prairie that only survived because it is too steep to plow. There are varied habitats so we can see different types of wildlife, song birds, wetland animals and turkey vultures and eagles. Going in early Spring, the trees may not have enough leaves to block the view so we should have some nice vistas of the Mississippi valley.

Come hike with us!

Pyramid State Park

Pyramid State Recreation Area was once owned by SIU Carbondale and the Arch Mineral Company. It was originally a strip mine but has been reclaimed for recreational use. Hiking, fishing and hunting are the primary focus of this jewel of a park. The trails are wide and easy to travel with gradually sloping terrain. The animal diversity is amazing for an area that was once devoid of trees and had coal mining equipment throughout. For the more adventurous of us, there are a couple of really pretty walk-in camp sites next to the lakes that were formed after the land was reclaimed.

Come hike with us!

Cedar Lake Trail

Cedar Lake State Park is a reservoir created for the city of Carbondale, IL for their drinking water. There is 14 mile system of trails that skirts the reservoir taking you near the lake and in the bluff areas. In the Spring we should see lots of wildflowers and songbirds. This is a favorite hike for students at SIU Carbondale as a close get away from classes! The trail we will use is an out and back trail so you get to catch the views both ways!

Come hike with us!

Pere Marquette State Park, Goat Trail Hike

This is one of the most spectacular hikes in our area! The views are amazing! The trails are intense, this is the closest thing to mountains in the area! If you plan to go out west, this is where you should train. You will experience rugged trails, steep cliffs, bluffs, caves and it is possible you may see eagles or turkey vultures soaring above the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers (we are very near the confluence!) The Lodge is lovely and we will visit there after the hike for the restrooms and maybe a game of chess on the giant chess board! Come hike with us!
