A hiker's paradise, this portion of Lincoln park bears a series of trails in various levels of difficulty. To the south and west, trails wind their way through deeper forest areas, trailing along babbling brooks and winding around the edges of marshland. To the east, trails make their way down sloping hills and through less intense forest to lead visitors along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. On the northern edge of this area, the trails are more planned leading visitors through a winding view of Chicago's flora.


A little off the hiking trails, the trees of a small grove wave in the breeze. They form a ring, the sky visible through the direct center. In the middle the great stump of a shorn oak juts out of the ground, forming a flat table. It's a little, wild place.
