Enjoy the Beautiful Fall Colors in Will County!

Now is a great time to head outdoors and enjoy beautiful fall colors in Will County!

Two great places to enjoy the warm colors of autumn are the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie and the Wauponsee Glacial Trail.

Here are some photos taken from the Wauponsee Glacial Trail between Manhattan and Symerton, Illinois:

The Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie is also a great resource for Will County.  Many hiking and biking trails are currently open to the public.
