Cook County - Cook County Forest Preserves

Swallow Cliffs North

Pileated Woodpecker and Louisiana Waterthrush have bred in the woods along the Sag Valley Trail, where it runs west, from the southwest corner of the parking lot.  The first ravine on the left has been good for the waterthrush, and the woodpecker bred here in 2009 … but there is good habitat all along this stretch of trail.
