Prairie Wolf

Half Day Road
Lake Forest, IL 60045

Several organizations are cooperating at this site to provide open space, wildlife habitat, flood control, water purification, education and outdoor recreation.

This preserve features a 20-acre wetland, wet prairie and adjacent oak woodlands, a 1.75-mile trail for hiking, bicycling and cross-country skiing, a 1-mile self-guided nature trail, and a special Dog Exercise Area where your pet can run leash-free.


In the early 1970s, the Lake County Forest Preserves moved to save 150 acres of land north of Old Mill Road. Additional land was purchased between 1976 and 1979.
