9700 S Wolf Rd, Willow Springs, IL
This will be a copy of the hike on April 16th EXCEPT we will all meet at 9:45 and do the orange trail in a clockwise direction.
When traveling on Archer, turn onto 95th, then Wolf road will be about 100 yards, turn right onto Wolf, Bullfrog lot on right in another 50 yards. Meet just at the entrance to the lot.
We will begin the blue trail at exactly 10 o'clock, to the green, right on the green to the orange, left on the orange to loop clockwise, then right on the green to the parking lot.
Dress in layers with good boots and a day pack for snacks and about a liter of water. Should be done by 1:30.
Please be advised that this is not a "walk in the park." There are rocks and gullies, mud and other stuff that require agility and good sense. The pace will be brisk (3.2+) so download the map from: http://fpdcc.com/downloads/maps/pdf/R6.pdf in case you get left behind. If you are unfamiliar with trail hiking or haven't been on a trail for a few decades this pace might be too challenging and I suggest starting with shorter distances on level terrain.
