SHAWNEE NATIONAL FOREST
TOUR SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
Williams Hill Pass is surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest and is located in a heavily traveled tourist route in the heart of Southeastern Illinois in Saline County. We call it Garden of the Gods Country.
While you are here, plan to do a little sight seeing or hiking in the Shawnee National Forest. Visit Garden of the Gods, Stone Face, the Iron Furnace, Rim Rock Trail, Glen-O Jones Lake, Pounds Hollow, Cave-In-Rock, Bell Smith Springs, Burden Falls, Lake Glendale and One Horse Gap Lake... all within minutes.
This area is rich in recreation, beautiful scenery, and pioneer history. While you’re here, you can also visit Saline Creek Pioneer Village and Museum (circa 1940) and those fascinating woodland hideaways in the Shawnee National Forest
Every highway in this area is a scenic drive in itself. Visit one of the best-kept secrets in the Midwest. Don’t miss the splendor of the rolling hills and the Shawnee National Forest.
