Summary:
Wildlife Prairie is a relatively new system of trails (~2 years old I believe) that's been built on a reclaimed mine site. This means there's some rocky, somewhat technical bits interspersed with the twisty single track. There's not much elevation change aside from a quick drop and climb into and out of a gully. Wildlife isn't a very physical trail but the twisty singletrack interspersed with the rocky sections makes it a somewhat unique trail in the area.

Recommended Route:
The trail can be a nice little 9 mile lollipop loop by taking the North loop trail then going through all the trails on the south side of the road and finishing up with the north loop again in reverse.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Independence Park, Farmdale Reservoir, Jubilee College State Park, Black Partridge Park

Summary:
This trail just opened, but isn't yet finished. They have about 6 miles of single track so far. Theres a lot of rocks for Illinois and the scenerey is great! I really like this park and hopefully they add a lot more trail. The only draw back is they ask you to pay to use it. The fee is about $6.

Its not actually in Wild Life Prarie park, it's directly acrossed the road from the main entrance.

Recommended Route:
Theres only one!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Farmdale, Marquette Heights, Black Partridge
