GRAND TOWER, IL (KFVS) -

You can embrace the cold this Heartland Weekend with a winter hike along the River to River Trail starting in Grand Tower, Illinois.

This southern Illinois town is also home to Devil’s Backbone Park. Here, limestone hills make up the backbone, and just beyond them you’ll find sweeping views of the Mighty Mississippi and a park the entire family can enjoy.

Legend has it, though, part of the park is also haunted. CLICK HERE for a closer look at why.
