Hike around 4 miles. The Dick Young Forest Preserve includes wetlands so has the tendency to flood in spring. The alternate location will be an out & back hike along the west side of the Fox River Trail near Batavia/Geneva.
I'll update any details of hike depending on trail conditions as the date gets closer...
I am no longer accepting new members to Recreational Hikers. Due to the lack in interest of members becoming event organizers, I am terminating Recreational Hikers activities. On December 15, 2016 I will cease to be the Meetup organizer for this group.
