Trails in Chili

Before heading out to Black Creek Park print the map. The color coded hiking trails and additional details will keep you on the right track.

The Ridge Trail is a 1.4 (one-way) mile walk over gently rolling terrain filled with honeysuckle, autumn olive, and many other beautiful shrubs. While on the trail look for the trees from Green’s Nursery, which was in existence 100 years ago.

The Creek Trail is a 3.1 (one-way) mile walk that passes alongside a beautiful little pond, which is the seasonal home to many geese and ducks. This trail also takes you through fields of honeysuckle, dogwood and many other types of greenery.

The Hickory Trail is a 1.4 mile walk over flat terrain which is full of multi-flora rose and dogwood shrubs. Many different birds can be seen in this area. The trail ends in Maple and Hickory woods which has an impressive collection of shagbark hickory trees.

The Bluebird Trail is a 1.2 mile walk that winds among honeysuckle, hawthorn and dogwood shrubs. This walk is good for bird watchers all year round.

The Wetland Trail is a 2.1 (one-way) mile walk that is dotted with wild flowers that attract butterflies. This trail also has many unique plants and trees that change with the seasons.

Or how about a nice bicycle ride?
