So here we are, at the end of the Raven Glen hike.
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:
Dedicated to the memory of our children
who have gone too soon.
They touched our lives and continue to touch our hearts.

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!
