Des Plaines River Hike

Come out and join us for a walk along the Des Plaines River in the Thatcher Woods Forest Preserve. We'll meet at the Trailside Museum in River Forest and follow the path into Thatcher Woods. The hike will go south on the river trail and when we get to Madison St. we'll turn around and retrace our route. The walk will last about 1 hour and cover 2.8 miles. The trail is dirt and will be covered with leaves so you might want to wear your hiking shoes or boots.

At the Trailside Museum there is a parking lot on Chicago Ave and street parking along Thatcher Rd. Look for the group in the parking lot.

This section of the trail normally stays dry but if it's too muddy we'll just switch over to the sidewalks of River Forest.
