Richard Young Forest Preserve

Richard Young Forest Preserve and the adjacent Lyon Forest Preserve protect 177 acres of open space, and 2.88 miles of trails. The shelter at Richard Young features a fire ring and a grill. Young contains oak-maple woodlands, seeps, restored prairies, and the meandering Lyon Creek. An astounding 430+ native plant species make the Young and Lyon preserves their home, including a number of endangered and threatened species. Young is a great place for a long hike to enjoy the sights and sounds of the woods. Footpaths (many area ADA accessible) overlook decks and interpretive signage allow visitors to experience the nature of this preserve.
