Hike 9.5 Miles or so: Palos Trail - West - Red Gate Woods.

This was so much fun that I decided to schedule another hike. This time we are going to add to this hike, perhaps a little more off trail hiking that may include some climbing up/down side of hills?

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.

This hike is limited to 20 hikers, because it is a single track for certain portions of this trail. We need to share with bikers that also want to enjoy this wonderful trail.

If you don't get on this hike...there will be others scheduled, so please don't just show as that is just NOT cool!!

Please dress accordingly. I recommend layers, starting cooler as your body will warm up within the first quarter mile.

The terrain is hilly with uneven, sometimes narrow trails. Don't forget to bring water and snack for the hike. We may even find ourselves on all fours to get through some of the off trail terrain.

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

We will meet at Red Gate Woods. Red Gate is just East of Route 83/107th Street.

We will take Black, Orange Blue, Black, Yellow, Pink, Orange, Green, Blue, Orange and Black.


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.

Also, if there is enough interest we can for for lunch at Irish Legends afterwards.

I will send out contact information Friday Night.

    It was 25 degrees out when I woke up, I thought most would cancel but I was pleasantly surprised when almost 20 brave souls were at Red Gate to greet me at the parking lot. It nice to a bunch faces, new and familiar ones!! Thanks for coming out today and keeping me from hiking by myself!! If I remember correctly, I think we did 10 miles today :-)

    Red Gate is by far my favorite trail and having a great leader made it even better. Thank you Oscar for posting and hosting this meetup. Good seeing everyone, both old and new.

    Saturday's forcast: Sunny, with a high near 34. West northwest wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 15 mph.

    Don't let this forecast scare you one bit. Dress in layers and you should be just fine. A couple of must haves: gloves and a hat.

    See you tomorrow morning!!
