Dedicated in 1973, Stoney Run is nestled in the rural setting of southeast Lake County. The 316 acres of tranquil woodlands, ponds, and open meadows lend themselves to a peaceful experience. The eight miles of hiking trails let visitors get away from it all and enjoy nature at its finest, observing first hand the interrelationship between flora and fauna in the heavily wooded oak hickory forest. Stoney Run's primarily level terrain is complemented by a ravine running through the eastern half of the park and rolling hills on the western side, providing for a great variety of wildflowers. The park is open 7 a.m. to sunset year round.
