We will be hiking the Yellow 8.1 mile loop in the Sag Valley Trail System, meeting at Teason's Woods.
About: Palos/Sag Valley Trail System offers an exciting mix of unpaved trails and amazing scenery that seems out of place in the Chicago metropolitan area, offering something for both the active outdoor enthusiast and the naturalist observer alike. Bikers and hikers can experience intense paths passing along geologically fascinating and poetically awe inspiring ravines. The 800-acre preserve offers a menagerie of oak savannas, hard wood forests, prairie and wetlands that are home to blue-winged warbler, scarlet tanager, wood thrush, red-bellied woodpecker, coyote, red fox, muskrat, tiger salamander and chorus frog to name a few of the noteworthy wildlife.
Directions: Take LaGrange Rd (Rt 45) south. At IL Rt 83 (Kingery Hwy) go west past the old toboggan slides. Turn left (south) onto 104th Ave and the parking lot for Teason's Woods will be on the left. http://trailmonkey.com/USpages/bikemaps/il_palossagsouthtrls1.JPG http://www.fpdcc.com/tier3.php?content_id=68&file=map_68n

We will be leaving at 9:30 sharp, please be on time.
Hope you can join me - Rob
