Shawnee National Forest Stoneface Poster
As one of ten Research Natural Areas in the Shawnee National Forest, Stoneface’s iconic rock feature makes it a must see stop along any trip through Southern Illinois. Located within the Eagle Mountains, this naturally occurring rock escarpment is home to one of the finest examples of sandstone glades found anywhere in the region. From wildflower hunting for the rare Indian Pink to catching a glimpse of nesting bald eagles, this nature sanctuary is a treasure trove of exploration. A 1.5 mile trail takes visitors on a steep climb past caves and through arch openings to the weathered rock resembling an old man, nearly 100 ft from the valley floor. Just past the namesake Stoneface are several of the best far flung overlooks found anywhere in the Shawnee National Forest.
