Side/Day trip to Panther Den

One of the best areas to hike. It is like Giant City without the traffic.

I’ll just cheat and post a link to a great web page with excellent photos, description and directions and the best map. I’ll just add a few of my own photos. Take note

“Take the trail heading behind the informational sign for the shortest route to the rocky sights. We walked the trail backwards, going north of the entrance road. Pretty walk through some nice pine stands, but a longer way to the main rock formations. It was also sunken and torn up by heavy horse usage, so watch your step. The rock formations are some of the best in Southern Il.”

There is a trail that takes you up top, and the views from the top are half the fun. Just stay away from the edge because if you fall off you will die. Aside from that it’s fantastic.
