Description Two lakes and the East Branch of the DuPage River make the 390-acre Hidden Lake Forest Preserve in Downers Grove an ideal place to fish, hike or just relax. The preserve is one of the few places in the county where visitors can hear spring peepers in the wooded ponds. It’s also home to King’s Grove, a remnant woodland of red, white, and bur oaks. Picnickers can use any of the tables located throughout Hidden Lake Forest Preserve. Over 2 miles of limestone trails wind through the preserve, making it a great destination for hikers, joggers, birders and other wildlife watchers. The true Hidden Lake is a glacier-dug pond tucked away among mature oaks and hickories. For anglers, the 15-acre Round Meadow Lake, created in conjunction with I-355, and the 10-acre Eagle Lake, dug in the shape of a soaring eagle by a previous owner as a memorial, offer bass, bluegill, crappie, and channel catfish. Dogs are welcome at Hidden Lake but must be on leashes no greater than 10 feet in length.
