Shawnee National Forest Garden of The Gods Devils Smokestack
As one of the most photographed locations in the state, Garden of the Gods breathtaking beauty draws in thousands of visitors each year to the heart of the Shawnee National Forest. Commemorated on the back of the Illinois state quarter in 2016, Garden of the Gods Recreation Area features a series of uniquely weathered rock formations and cliffs not seen anywhere else in the Midwest. Highlighting the picturesque scenery and best known landmarks of Kissing Monkeys, Camel Rock, and the Devils Smokestack is the 0.25 mile Observation Trail. Those looking for more of a challenge can traverse the 1.6 mile Indian Point Loop which explores a length of scenic, cliff high overlooks before descending through part of the Wilderness Area to several remote caves.
