Head to Heritage Harbor’s Red Dog Grill this Saturday for a group bike ride to Buffalo Rock State Park! This 15-mile round trip will take you around the scenic harbor, through historic downtown Ottawa, and up to the peak of Buffalo Rock State Park! "We're expecting about 50 bicyclists this year," said event organizer Rich Crum.
"We've seen an increase in the number of participants over the last few years, it's become a really popular event."
The destination, Buffalo Rock State Park, is home to some of Starved Rock Country's most scenic overlooks. Large sandstone cliffs overhang the the Illinois River, while beautiful rustic trails snake their way through prairie and forest. This hidden gem is a must-visit for cyclists and hikers alike.
