On a recent walk through Lower Glen Oak Park, I mentioned a trail from Grandview Drive to Forest Park Nature Center.
I decided to check it out again today. The trail from Grandview Drive begins at the first look-out after turning off Prospect Avenue. There is signage there about the Pimiteoui Trail and Grandview Drive.
There is a sidewalk on the left side of the outcrop and a path on the right side. Both lead to the steps that are the beginning of the trail.
I didn't notice the sidewalk until today. The path is clear of debris, but has a pretty steep slope at times. Down is much easier than up!
Very quiet in the woods.
A variety of plant life.
Eagle Scouts built bridges.
My goal is to make it all the way before the end of summer. I need
to get in shape first. I turned around at the last hill with all the steps.
