Raceway Woods Saturday Morning Hike

Raceway Woods is one of the favorite forest preserves in Kane County for a Saturday morning hike. The hills can be a bit challenging, but the scenery will be absolutely gorgeous. The paths are nice and wide and mostly asphalt and limestone. 

Raceway Woods is a lovely 122 acre open space tract getting its name from the old race track that once wound around parts of it. The central core of the tract has a fine savannah and mesic woodland with steep banks where pocket seeps trickle down into a clear rippling brook that wanders through several pristine natural areas. 

Please note that we will be meeting at the smaller entrance off of Huntley to the preserve.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
