A lovely peaceful hidden area. If this were in the city, you would forget you were there. You can sit and enjoy the view, fish or walk/ride on the trails. They lead to more nice areas. I love the trails.

Enjoy relaxing, fishing, or biking at Hidden Lakes. Several small ponds fed by the Dupage River provide an interesting area in Bolingbrook. A bridge across the Dupage River allows bike access to the trails North of the river and Whalon Lake.

I rarely stop, but the fact that a path connects to this place from every direction means I skate through every couple days. Nice place to fish, stroll, skate, bike or take a walk.
