Climbed up to the top of the bluffs many many times. Love hiking the bluff trail and have ascended from both sides a number of times. I've lived within an hour of this park for most of my life so it will always be a special place for me. Love it!

Holsti97Midwest SP Outing  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2009

Holsti97

My wife and I hiked to the top of the bluffs in search of the Poison Ivy Rock and other SP members. Biked around the park and down the Ice Age Trail. First visit to the park despite living in Wisconsin my entire life. Met up with George (Alpinist)and others from the Chicago Mountaineering Club in the evening and had a nice visit discussing mountains and Summitpost. Will definitely be returning to this park.

Did my first legitimate climbing there. Great stuff. Devil's Lake also has some of the best hiking in the area. I've been there in summer and fall and it's always gorgeous.

Great climbing spread out over a large area. Easy to avoid people if you desire.

Stu BrandelBest Hiking within 4 hours of Chicago
Date Climbed: Dec 31, 2011

Stu Brandel

Within 4 hours driving distance of Chicago, the best hiking (other contenders: Starved Rock, Indiana Dunes). Avoid weekends if you can or come fall/winter. In a cold, foggy December day I felt like I had the park to myself, did a 16 mile loop from Parfrey's Glen to the east bluff and back, virtually all park or forest.

Four of us left North Shore area and went up East Bluff trail, visited the doorway, descended Balanced Rock Trail. From there we hugged the lakeshore around to Tumbled Rocks trail to take us back. A great hike, almost 5 miles.

Had a great time climbing the walls. The walls were packed with people climbing. We mostly "hung around" the Eastern Bluffs.
