Hike or Ski Solar Lighted Trails
Get out on the trails hiking and cross country skiing after dark this winter. The McHenry County Conservation District has two sites open late for hiking or cross country skiing when the conditions are right. These trails are solar lit and open to the public every day. Please note: When there is snow, hikers are asked to walk on the outside of the ski tracks.
Pleasant Valley, 13315 Pleasant Valley Rd., Woodstock. This half-mile looped trail located on the east side of the entrance drive is fairly flat terrain, perfect for beginners or shorter outings. Park in the first parking area and sign in.
Hickory Grove Highlands, 500 Hickory Nut Grove Lane, Cary. The 1 mile looped trail travels through a newly restored savanna, offering a longer scenic route suitable for intermediate skiers. Visitors should sign in at the trail head.
