Outdoor recreation haven in Makanda
There’s an embarrassment of riches in beautiful Makanda, when you talk about outdoor recreational opportunities. Few places anywhere in Illinois offer more. At the doorstep to Giant City State Park, there’s rock climbing and hiking in the park’s 4,000 acres of Shawnee Forest. There’s also horseback riding, road cycling and mountain biking arguably the best in Southern Illinois.
The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail is all within easy reach. And you’ve got the Eco-Friendly Makanda Inn as your adventure headquarters, one of the greenest retreats in Illinois.
