spring - 

Rising temperatures and a sense of renewal beckon you outside to enjoy the fresh, crisp air of spring. Lace up your hiking shoes or tune up your bike for an excursion on miles of trails at Glacial Park and the McHenry County Conservation District. Or if you prefer a smoother ride, the paved, 26-mile Prairie Trail winds through rural landscapes around the county as well as urban and residential environs.
