With Mother Nature teasing us that summer is coming, make plans for this location soon.

In right around an hours times, you can be looking at a waterfall that will take your breath away.  Apple River Canyon State Park in Jo Daviess County offers lots of family fun that we will get to in a bit, but this waterfall folks.

Breathtaking is a great way to describe this waterfall, Apple Canyon Falls is a spillway for  Apple Canyon Lake.

Apple Canyon State Park, not that it is hidden, is known as a hidden gem. You won't find mass amounts of people hiking and walking the trails, the park is really underused.

Several trails to hike and bike, you can set up camp for the night, and picnic. Apple River Canyon Park is located at 8763 E Canyon Rd, Apple River, IL 61001-9555.
