Hazards/Obstructions: Yes (See Comments) Video: None Photo: None Submitted By: Kirk Spencer, 12-21-2013
Directions: Sled riding hill is at Belvidere Municipal Park on Locust St.

Comments: On Locust St. across the street from the grain bins you can park on the side of the street or in the parking lot. Don't go down the very middle of the hill there are 2 trees no roots above ground. The hill starts at a 60 degree angle for 5 feet for a strong start then levels to15 degrees for 20 feet then 20 degrees for 175 feet finally levels out at~2 degrees for the ~70 feet that sleds continue moving. WATCH OUT FOR SNOWBOARD RAMPS THEY WILL POP INFLATABLES, SHATTER OLD PLASTIC THAT HAS ALREADY SEEN A FULL WINTER, AND AS HARD AS A ROCK LANDINGS!! WATCH KIDS A RIVER IS ONLY 700 FEET AWAY WITH A CURRENT THAT BREAKS THE ICE!!

Directions: Sledding hill at Memorial Park in B.I. Located on the South side of 127th Street (a.k.a. Burr Oak Ave.) about 1/2 mile west of Western Ave. This hill is adjacent to major Illinois State Route (127th St).

Comments: Parking on the street at the top of the hill and in the neighborhood surrounding. Just going down the hill (not the toboggan slide) is awesome. Especially for kids. This hill even has a built in toboggan slide for those who want to go really fast. Very nice but the ground that meets up with the bottom of the toboggan slide has a real bad dip/bump and trust me, it hurts when sled meets ground. 2-2-2011: In response to comments on the toboggan slide-this has been torn down, but will be rebuilt in the next couple of years.

Directions: Sledding at Soldier Field, 1410 Museum Campus Dr, Chicago, IL 60605. It’s located to the southeast of the stadium.

Comments: "Chicago’s only major, 33′ high, sledding hill was part of Soldier Field’s park renovations, a few years back. With a 220 foot slope, tow rope and snow machines to pick up the slack for mother nature, this is the hill to conquer. Try to pick off days and times or be prepared for crowds." -Bonnie Kenaz Mara (CBS)

2009 UPDATE: About 30 parking spots in the lot, but people were constantly coming and going and lot was never full. Was not crowded on a weekend after a large snowfall. This hill is better for smaller kids as it's not too steep. Almost all kids there were under 10. That's probably why there weren't crowds, because little kids get bored, tired and cold more quickly. People who want more thrills go to Jensen Slides Area (also listed on this site) which is just down the road from Indian Woods.

Directions: James Park (Mount Trashmore), intersection of Oakton and Dodge.

Comments: Hill used to have a Ski Rope Tow. Village got antsy and started to block (and salt) the big part of the hill. I don't know what condition they are allowing today. Very big, steep and challenging, even for adults. There is a smaller side for kids. Don't reccomend going down staris or other (off-trails).

Updated By: Rudy Avilas, 1-3-2014
Directions: Lighted sledding hill at the new Swallow Cliff sledding hill located along Route 83, west of La Grange Road in unincorporated Palos Township.

Comments: Since the 1930s, Swallow Cliff had been home to the famous toboggan slides, which were demolished in May 2008 due to financial constraints for necessary repairs. The toboggan slides had been closed since 2004. After renovating the hill through the spring, summer and fall seasons, the Cook County Forest Preserve unveiled the new sledding hill in time for the first snowfall of 2008. The hill is at the same location as the former toboggan slides. Once all of the concrete from the slides was removed, the hill was planted with grass seed and graded to be nearly identical to the toboggan slides. People like the height and people like the grade. While the sledding hill�s highest point is only about two thirds the way up the hill, Mayberry said it still has some good height and that sledders can still build up decent speed. The sledding hill is open until 10 p.m. daily. Unlike the former toboggan slides, there is no official amount of snow or temperature required to open the sledding hill. Details about this hill was found while reading this sled hill topic here.

JAN. 2014 UPDATE: Rudy contacted us to state that this was closed for the winter of 2013/2014. Please email us at Admin@SledRiding.com when it reopens so that we can remove this closure report.
