Cathy and Kevin's favorite outdoor area is Homer Lake Forest Preserve. It contains an 80 acre lake with 10 miles of hiking trails that cross grassland, prairies, and woodlands. It is located 3 miles northwest of Homer. On most of our visits to Homer Lake we also bring Suzy and watch her run circles around us, literally. She loves to run through the underbrush and leap over fallen trees. When Suzy gets excited she has an odd run which includes a good deal of leaping. She loves the water almost as much as she loves the mud. Suzy has fun running up and down the muddy creeks that empty into Homer Lake.

Homer Lake has a spillway that empties into the Salt Fork of the Vermilion river. There are trails which follow along the river providing ample opportunity for Suzy to run and splash in the river. The longest trail is the West Lake Trail which is 4.6 miles long and runs along the western edge of the lake before circling back through the prairie. More information about Homer Lake can be found on Kevin's Trail Guide: East Central Illinois Trails site.
