Hike 9.5 Mlies: Palos Trail - West

The earlier version of this hike was accidentally deleted by one of the organizers (NOT ME). I hope you can still attend.

This hike is on...see you Saturday morning.

I didn't see anything scheduled for Saturday so for those that want to get out, join me!

Let's take a Hike. This will be a 9.5 or so mile hike, we will try to make it in 3. hours.

This is not a beginner hike so please keep that in mind before you RSVP.

Please dress accordingly. The terrain is hilly with uneven, sometimes narrow trails. Don't forget to bring water and snack for the hike. No Rain is expected Friday night and Saturday morning but we had some rain Thursday so the trails will be a little muddy.

We will meet at 9:45 and start the hike at 10:00 sharp. Please be on time.

We will meet at Bull Frog Lake. Take I-55 to La Grange Road/96th Ave (US 45). Take La Grange Road/96th Ave (US 45) South to 95th Street. Take 95th Street West to Wolf Road. (Wolf Road sign is not marked very well. If you hit Archer Ave. Turn around and it will be the 1st right.) Take Wolf road South about 1/8 of a mile. Bull Frog Lake will be on the Right.

We will take Blue, Green, Orange, Black, Orange, Blue, Orange, Green, and Blue. http://fpdcc.com/downloads/maps/pdf/pa_trailmap.pdf

Don’t Forget: Dress for the weather in layers and bring water and a snack for the trail.

Bring plenty of water as there are no water sources on the trail.

I hope to see you Saturday.

I will send out contact information Friday Night.

    Great day for a hike made all that much better when I get to see many new and familiar faces smiling. Thanks to all that made it out and kept me company as I strolled through the woods.
