**HIKE FORT HILL TRAIL AT LAKEWOOD**

We will meet at noon and hike the Fort Hill Trail, approximately 9 miles, at Lakewood Forest Perserve in Wauconda.  


Directions:  located on Rte 176, east of Rand Rd/Rte 12, west of Fairfield Rd in Wauconda.


The trail is mostly limestone, well marked, wide trail for all levels.


Wear athletic footwear, carry water and even a trail snack is a good idea.  Dress in layers.  Consider a backpack to keep it all in.


**if there is an interest, we can head over to Docks Bar n Grill on Bangs lake only a mile down rte 176.

    Just watched the forecast. The worst of the rain isn't until this evening. We should be off the trail well before the storms hit. There may be showers and the temps up in Waucanda will be much lower than in the city this afternoon.
