Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie


Midewin is not only the largest prairie restoration site east of the Mississippi River, but also the largest open space in northeastern Illinois.

The Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie is located about 60 miles south of Chicago on Historic Route 66. Trails available for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. A small herd of bison was introduced here in October 2015 and it is possible (although not guaranteed) to spot them from our trails.
