Hiking – Little Grand Canyon, Illinois

Hello!

A couple friends and I went hiking at Little Grand Canyon in Pomona, Illinois yesterday and I wanted to share a couple pictures. This is a truly unique hiking experience. We hiked the 3.6 mile trail counter-clockwise and started off hiking downhill to the beginning of Little Grand Canyon. The trail is so amazing because you actually hike down, through the canyon.

The hike can be a bit difficult as water does flow through the canyon and rocks can be slippery. It is an adventurous task to navigate the way down, finding all the little stairs and hand holds carved into the canyon floor and walls.

Once at the bottom, the trail winds through the flood plain beneath towering bluffs. The hike up is just as enjoyable (and difficult) as the hike down. Once out of the canyon the trail winds around to an overlook over the flood plain.

All in all, an adventurous and wonderful hike!

Update: I started a new blog that features just hiking. Check it out HERE!
