Lake Sangchris Hike 

  Join us on a two mile hike on the Deer Run Trail.    of Sangchris Lake State Park.  This peaceful trail    goes through Upland and Flood Plain forest       along the South Fork of the Sangamon River. The    trail is lightly hiked and relatively easy although   there are two short steep sections when it leaves    the flood plain.
