Hiking & Trails

IMG_3192_edited-1If you are planning to hike…Starved Rock State Park is the place to be! With 13 miles of well marked hiking trails, you can plan your hiking based on your skill levels. Let’s get started.

Guided Hikes
We now offer guided hikes year ’round! This is the best and safest way to see the park. You’ll hike to LaSalle & Tonti Canyons and see the incredible views from Lover’s Leap and Eagle Cliff. Our “Take a Hike & Lunch” runs from April-November. From December through March, guided hike include a coupon for hot cocoa or coffee in our Cafe.

Half Day Hikes with the Walker’s Club
Would you like someone to hike with you? Don’t know where to hike? The Walker’s Club meets on Thursdays at 9:00 am in the lobby of Starved Rock Lodge for pre-planned group hikes. These hikes take a few hours and usually end around noon. Ask for a full schedule at the Front Desk or call the Lodge for more information at 800-868-7625.
