Raven Glen 5 – Finally, the End!

So here we are, at the end of the Raven Glen hike.

For anyone following my Facebook page, I posted a photo a couple days ago and asked “Where is It?” –trees

Near the start of the main trail is a half-mile grass trail loop, winding through an oak grove, quiet and peaceful.

At the entry to this loop is a stone marker, which says:

Woodland Walk

Dedicated to the memory of our children
who have gone too soon.

They touched our lives and continue to touch our hearts.

Northern Lake County Chapter
The Compassionate Friends

A rather poignant marker, I’d say.

And alongside this trail bloomed yellow coneflower in profusion:

So that is Raven Glen East, a former campground and now a wonderful part of the Lake County Forest Preserves! I hope you enjoyed it!
