Interesting Features:

Making up the eastern extent of the Stony Lake Trails network, the Jeffrey-Cowan Forest Preserve encompasses one of the largest undeveloped stretches of shoreline on Stony Lake. Visitors can hike to the highest point that surrounds the lake and enjoy the scenic view that awaits at the very top.

This outstanding and iconic site typifies the treasured and exclusive landscape of Stony Lake. The forest here is comprised of large older growth White Pines and White Oak which is significant because these species are rare to the area.

We welcome the public to come experience all of the brilliance that the Jeffrey-Cowan Forest Preserve has to offer!
