Thank you to the Trailblazers Committee for helping with the creation of this map. The digital trail map depicts the LLA trail system as best as possible. Please remember to use your best judgment and common sense when navigating the trails. As always, be aware of your surroundings and do not traverse on any neighboring private property.
Trails are a combination of wooded and lakeside trails, asphalt and concrete pathways, wooden bridges and steps, and one esplanade. Trails are periodically marked with green posts with a gold community logo. Volunteers, including the LLA committee, Trailblazers, and Staff work together to keep trails clear of debris and encroaching vegetation.
If you notice an area in need of service, please contact your Village Manager so that we may inspect the area.
The pocket-size trail map is available here or in the LLA office (while supplies last).
In December of 2014, Thomas Salamon (Troop #628) wrapped up his Eagle Scout Project. His project transformed an existing section of the Indian Caves Trail from Balmoral Ridge down to the Indian Caves into an informative nature walk. With the help of his fellow troop members, leaders and family, twelve numbered posts were installed at points of interest (indicating specific trees, birds indigenous to the area, and the Indian Caves). Thomas then created a brochure (linked below) that gives a brief description of each numbered object.
Scout, Duncan Slade (Troop 1998) created a Nature Trail Guide for the Forever Foundation. The .4 mile trail-break leading to the Forever Foundation is found approximately midway through the Balmoral Trail. There is also a QR code on the first post along the trail for Members to scan and access the trail guide on their phone or tablet.
