HIKING

There are many miles of diverse hiking and backpacking trails in the Shawnee National Forest and in Southernmost Illinois, including the 160-mile River to River Trail. Take extra precautions during hunting seasons by wearing bright orange clothing. It is a good idea to carry a compass and map. Hikers should yield to equestrians. Moving off the trail to the downhill side and talking with the rider will help keep from startling their horse.
