Things To Do
The 69.61-acre York Woods Forest Preserve in Oak Brook — the county's first forest preserve — features vast oak woodlands and great places to picnic.
Oaks over 100 years old form canopies over the trail, where birders enjoy spotting northern orioles, cedar waxwings, warbling vireos, mallards, red-bellied woodpeckers and owls, among others.
The Forest Preserve District purchased York Woods in 1917, making it the oldest forest preserve in the county.
