big moon hike-then eat/drink

this is a multi group meetup

SHOE FACTORY PRESERVE, also known as Carl R. Hansen Woods

We will once again be hiking in a closed park and this one is in Cook County. Cook County’s Ranger Rick's tend to be less friendly. i think the fines are $125 per person. so head lamps will only be on in a emergency. your eyes will addjust to the darkness.

As usual I will lead the hike on and off trails.

THIS WILL NOT BE ON A PAVED BIKE PATH

Bring boots, and any drink/food you might need for a 2 -3 hour hike.

    Hi All, I'm trying to use mapquest to get the driving directions. Its giving me Shoe Factory Road, Hoffman Estates, IL 60192. I thought it was in Steamwood? I"m pretty bad with directions just want to make sure I don't end up in a ditch somewhere. Thanks.

      Hi Jai, I am very happy with Merrell hiking boots. They will serve you well. Dicks and Sports Authority have them.

    Hi Robert. Thanks for organizing this. I noticed you also have a Mar. a 29 night hike. Is it in lieu of this one? Also, I won't have internet service for a couple of days beforehand; if I'm added (currently on waiting list), please consider me in. I'll confirm that afternoon. Jane

    A total of 2 of us. I haven't attended one of your hikes, anything we need to know/bring?

    March 15, 2013

    • robert

      Always bring a map, proper clothing/boots. You need to keep up.We will travel about 3 mph.

  • Kim

    I'm new to this group and I'd love to join but I'd need a ride to get there. Do you help out with carpooling?

    March 15, 2013

    • robert

      No, getting there is up to you. By posting above, you let everyone know you need to carpool. Good luck.

      March 15, 2013

  • Nina

    Maybe!
