Biking and Picnic at Blackwell Forest Preserve

Why Blackwell?
Ideal picnic destination for South West Suburban residents – has several lakes, biking and hiking paths, fishing and boating facilities in the lake and finally, numerous picnic joints with charcoal grilling support. You could camp in there as well.

How to Plan your visit?

•  Choose your appetite – picnic or over night camping. We choose the former and did a picnic spiced with biking, hiking and boating.

Tip: There are multiple entrances and parking spots so better to choose the exact spot in GPS. So, would recommend using following Google Maps link:
