Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie

Welcome to Midewin!

As the largest public open space in northeastern Illinois, Midewin offers experiences of vastness and solitude unavailable elsewhere. The goal of recreation management at Midewin is to provide opportunities for long distance trails without interruption by public roads, and opportunities to experience prairie ecosystems and view grassland wildlife. Development of recreation trails and features at Midewin is an on-going process. There are many miles of trails available at Midewin for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians. Nonmotorized recreational activities such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are also welcome in the winter when there is enough snow on the ground.
