Volo Bog is an Illinois Nature Preserve. These caches are located on or very close to developed trails.
Volo Bog Interpretive Trail: Designed for hikers only, this half-mile interpretive loop leads visitors through each stage of bog succession. It is constructed of wooden dock sections, boardwalks and a woodchip path. Trail brochures, adapted for each season, are available at the visitor center.
Tamarack View Trail: This 2.75-mile trail is designed for hiking and cross-country skiing (with a six-inch minimum snowbase). As park visitors traverse through woods, wetlands, field and prairie, they are given the opportunity to experience and enjoy the diverse communities within the park. From higher elevations along the trail, one can look down into the Volo Bog basin and view the state threatened tamarack trees. The trail begins just south of the visitor center and moves in a counter clockwise direction. All visitors are encouraged to move in the appropriate direction, but it is especially important that skiers do so to avoid accidents. A trail brochure for Tamarack View Trail is also available
