Let's Take a Hike: Sag Valley Trail

Let's take a Hike. This will be a 8.5 mile hike (the yellow loop). We will try to make it in 3 hours. Please dress accordingly. The terrain is hilly with uneven, sometimes narrow trails. If it rains this week the trails will be muddy. Don't forget to bring water and snack for the hike.

We will meet at 9:15 and start the hike at 9:30 sharp.

We will meet by the Port-A-Potty at the end of the parking lot.

Swallow Cliff Woods (North) is 1/4 mile West of La Grange Road/96th Ave (US 45) on Cal-Sag Road (Rt 83).

    I'm looking for a ride from Arlington heights. Please call me @[masked]

    I am also going and am bringing my dog -- so if any drivers are willing to let my dog in the car I would definitely join a carpool or others can join me. I am in Roscoe Village. If you are ok with dogs in the car ---- My dog rides in the backseat and is quite chill in the car. If we join you, I would bring a blanket for him to be on & would pitch in extra for cleaning afterwards as he will shed a bit.

    Look forward to carpooling or just meeting you there!
