Hiking & Trails

At 3,433 acres, Pratt’s Wayne Woods Forest Preserve is the largest forest preserve in the county.

It offers great fishing and a place to fly model planes and is home to the Brewster Creek Marsh Nature Preserve. The preserve is located on the outwash plain of the West Chicago Moraine. Made up largely of wetlands, this landscape combines calcium-rich water with wet sandy soil to support plant life more commonly seen near Lake Michigan.
