Blackwell is a large, recreational forest preserve. Recreational activities include camping, hiking, fishing, and boating.
At approximately 837 feet above sea level, Mount Hoy is said to be the tallest point in DuPage County, Illinois. DuPage County is quite flat so Mount Hoy does not have much height competition. Several years ago, I hiked to the top of Mount Hoy. More challenging than I would have expected. There was not much to see from the top – a few water towers and church steeples in the distance.
Then it started to rain. We went home.
