Orland Grassland Trail Description

The Orland Grassland trail is a perfect escape from the Chicago suburbs. The grassland itself is an Illinois Nature Preserve, and has been restored from farmland and now boasts 750 acres of grasslands, praires, shrublands and woodlands.

Birders will be happy to know that the Orland Grassland is host to 100 different bird species including species of concern like the Henslow Sparrow, Bobolink, Field Sparrow and Eastern Meadowlark. In the summer, the grassland boasts a number of unique grasses and flowers including the scurfy pea, lead plant and hoary puccoon among many others. 

This 8-mile trail encompasses a large loop (red loop) around the main preserve and smaller loop in the south grassland (yellow loop) which are both connected via a crosswalk on 179th street. Within the larger grassland loop, there are also several deer trails and single track dirt trails that cut across the preserve. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at both loops of the Orland Grassland trail at 167th St. and Eagle Ridge Dr. See TrailLink map for more detailed directions.
