Stretching north from Freeport, Illinois, to the Wisconsin state line, the Jane Addams Trail is a natural wonder. Expect to see birds and wild animals-from exotic aerial hunters, such as owls and hawks, to run-of-the-mill squirrels and deer. The trail is closed every fall during deer-hunting season, and snowmobiling is allowed when there are at least 4 inches of snow on the trail. (Winter users are encouraged to wear bright-colored clothing so they are visible to snowmobilers.) The trail is named for the renowned humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize winner who grew up in Cedarville, less than 2 miles from the trail. You can visit her childhood home and gravesite in Cedarville. Visit the Jane Addams Trail site
