The road through the park is twisty
At Starved Rock sandstone bluffs overlook the Illinois river and there are 18 canyons here which were formed by glacial melt water.

Lots of stairs to climb here

And because the terrain is not flat, the roads have a bit of curves in and around Starved Rock. The road through the park has a ridiculous 10MPH sped limit and in the summer time, especially on the weekends, the police will pull you over for speeding, especially if you’re on a motorcycle.

Don't get too excited, there are only a hand full of curves here
Like a said, there are a lot of stairs here
Another frozen waterfall
I like to hike here in the winter time because there aren’t that many people. But in the early Spring when the snow starts melting and especially after heavy rains, you can find beautiful waterfalls in most of the canyons. Winter time is also a great time to take pictures here of the many ice formations.
