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.
