Farmdale Reservoir Run – Morton IL

Farmdale Reservoir Run – Morton IL

Illinois is not well known for being a trail running state, so when an actual semi -wilderness trail is found, we must rejoice and run the dang thang!  On a beautiful day, my cousin Brian and his college daughter Erika headed out to the Farmdale Rez for a jaunt through the woods in a natural wooded area with streams, pine stands (rare in IL), steep ravines, and the usual trail obstacles of roots and rocks.  Not bad for IL and with it being April, we only got wet with sweat, not drenched as we would be in mid summer.  And, bonus, too  early for ticks, mosquitoes, and poison ivy.
