About Deer Grove East

In 2018, the Forest Preserves of Cook County and Openlands opened a new interpretative trail in Deer Grove East, with elements drawing the visitor’s attention to different basic nature themes: land, sky, and water. The four interpretative areas were installed along the forest preserve’s 2.8-mile paved trail. They each offer seating and rest areas away from the traffic of the main trail system.
