Geocache Description:

An oversized Red-Tailed Hawk's Nest educates visitors about this raptor's unique characteristics and allows them to see through the “eyes” of a hawk at an adjustable viewing station. This cache is kid friendly, bike friendly and not quite handicap accessible. This cache is small camoed tube with a screw like top. It has a new location that is a bit more secluded than the older spot. The hawks watches everything.

The 1.3-mile Lake Michigan Trail runs from Old Elm Road at Sheridan Road through the Preserve to Lake Michigan, where visitors can enjoy 0.75 miles of shoreline owned and managed by the Lake County Forest Preserves. Swimming and boating are not allowed on this section of Lake Michigan.

A 0.3-mile asphalt educational trail loops around the Preserve's historic parade grounds, and a 0.3-mile woodchip trail provides scenic views. The trail also features an expansive trail bridge over an ecologically sensitive ravine.

The new trails and bridge are part of the Preserve's Master Plan, approved in 2003 by the Lake County Board of Commissioners to improve public access to Lake Michigan and preserve natural resources including restoring 65 acres of native prairies and plantings and stabilizing ecologically sensitive ravines.
