Shawnee National Forest Trail Guide

Welcome to my Shawnee National Forest Trail Guide page! Here you can find trail guides for the Shawnee National Forest, Fish & Wildlife Refuges, Illinois State Parks and Preserves, and even for trails and areas that are outside of Illinois. I try to add new guides to this site every week or at least a few times a month. I also make sure I update old guides to reflect new information that comes up. There are over 40-guides on this website making my Shawnee National Forest Trail Guide the largest online. And these guides are 100% free to you!
