Hiking an Urban trail is a great way to spend quality time with your family and stay fit. It`s also a great way to exercise your pet you`re traveling with too. As shared by Jennifer Huls-Wayland of L & L Travel on "The Morning Show." If you are looking to "Get out of Town," check out Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve in Chicago. One breathtaking spot is a waterfall along Sawmill Creek. With 2,474 acres of plants, animals and trails you`re sure to spot something of interest. www.dupageforest.com

Its built on an abandoned railroad and links commercial districts, schools, parks and fairgrounds. In addition it connects to the 5.2 mile Carmel portion on the north side of Indy providing quiet, wooded areas. www.indygreenways.org
