An ancient, well-worn path known as the Great Sauk Trail stretches 400 miles, crossing the southern edge of Cook County. This old American Indian thoroughfare now forms the southern boundary of Sauk Trail Woods Forest Preserve. Thorn Creek cuts through the middle of this preserve and forms Sauk Lake within its steep valley walls. The sweeping views and five miles of paved trails draw visitors to this 630-acre preserve. The South, Central and North entrances each offer a view of Sauk Lake and large, canopied shelters for picnickers. Shoreline fishing is permitted in the lake, although a dam on the Little Calumet River keeps out most fish besides carp.
