Ulrich Park Soft Trails

All trails in Ulrich Park are unmarked, single track, social trails. The Chicago Central Railroad tracks cut through the park with a beautiful tunnel built underneath the track. Ulrich Park is a hidden gem with very little foot traffic and great place to view all that nature has to offer.  

Donated in 1965, this Park is a combination of upland and floodplain woodlands on the west bank of the Cedar River. It functions as a nature preserve. Park boundaries extend across the main river channel to include a small section of the east end of the island west of Cottage Row Drive.
