Tinley Creek Trail (South) Reviews

I LOVE THIS TRAIL!!!! I LIVED IN GLENWOOD IL FOR 6 YEARS, AND I MOVED BACK TO OH IN 2006. THIS WAS MY FAVORITE PLACE TO BE. GOD'S COUNTRY!!!
BY FAR THE BEST TRAIL FOR WALKING. 1 TIME AROUND ALMOST 4 MILES. A WALK WITH GOD AND STILL TAKE IN THE VERY SCENIC VIEWS AS YOU WALK. I WISH I HAD THIS SAME TRAIL HERE IN WILLOUGHBY OH.
EVERY TIME I RETURN TO VISIT I ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO WALK THIS TRAIL. SO MANY FOUND MEMORIES!!!

UNTIL NEXT TIME...

I used to run this trail in highschool, and I love to cycle or walk it now.

Great trail, kept up well and generally not TOO much traffic. Love the scenery and its so nice to have an uninterrupted loop to do laps!
