  • My Wife and I went here (and Pomona Natural Bridge) the day after the big storm in October, only saw one snake, a black snake. WE HAD A WONDERFUL HIKE! Highly recommend going to Inspiration Point. The view is truly Inspirational, and we saw a Bald Eagle flying BELOW us!

  • I live in Kansas but am from southern Illinois, and I've been going to Pine Hills since I was a teenager, many years ago. I always enjoyed the rugged scenery, the cliffs, the swamps, and even the snakes! Southern Illinois has much more to offer than most people ever realize, and whatever else it may be, it's home. And thankfully, it is a long way from Chicago!
