Schweitzer Woods Morning Hike

  • July 6, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

There is a nice mile trail going around the fenced in dog park.  We will walk the trail, and then let the dogs burn off some energy in the fenced in off leash area.

Schweitzer Woods is located at 16N690 Sleepy Hollow Road in Dundee.  The preserve is located at Illinois Route 72 and Sleepy Hollow Road.

This preserve is an approved off-leash dog area. All follow all Rules and Regulations regarding use of these areas.

Emily
Schweitzer gave a most beautiful gift to her fellow citizens of Kane County. A deed for her 160 acre property arrived at the Forest Preserve in December 1989. It was Emily Schweitzer's wish that the rolling kame and kettle country be preserved as open space. The property has oak forests, crop land, hay meadows and marshes. A beautiful Edwardian house and matching dog kennel are situated in the southeast corner of the property. Miss Schweitzer's only request was to maintain the property as passive open space.

    This morning's walk was sultry, but a good walk (a little buggy).

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
