Swallow Cliff Woods North is my favorite place in Cook County. In the summer, it's truly nature's gym, with more than a dozen miles of connected trails, including an 8.1-mile loop. The large open areas are great for everything from walking lunges to workout boot camp to a little batting practice for father and son. And then there is the GEM of the preserve: The Stairs at Swallow Cliff. As the premier feature of this location, 126 stairs welcome hundreds of workout-seekers every day, all year round. From stair-climbers to joggers to bicyclists, this location is both beautiful to the eye and unbeatable to help visitors stay healthy.

As great as this location is during the warmer months, it is just as popular in the winter, when Swallow Cliff becomes a wonderland. With tiny hills for tots to discover sledding and the one of the area's highest sledding hills for the bigger kid in all of us, the sledding hill at Swallow Cliff has been lauded by area thrill-seekers as the best in the region. The trails welcome winter hikers and the wide open areas of land are overtaken by nordic skiers, winter workout buffs and the
occasional snowman builder.

Swallow Cliff is simply the BEST place in Chicagoland. It offers spaces to create workout opportunities to help keep visitors healthy, active family time for bonding and a chance to create all the do-it-yourself fun you can imagine.
