Week Night Walk at Herrick Lake in Wheaton

  • May 15, 2012 · 5:30 PM
  • Herrick Lake West Parking Lot

Time to start enjoying the spring weather after work.

Whether by foot, bicycle, ski or horseback, you can explore Herrick Lake via several multipurpose trails that feature benches and numbered trail markers to guide you along the way. A path around the lake connects both parking lots to the picnic grounds and the trailhead, and additional trails cut through the central and southern parts of the preserve.

Link to information about Herrick and where you can print a map of preserve: http://www.dupageforest.com/Conservation/ForestPreserves/Herrick_Lake.html

We will start hiking by 5:45p. We are going to do about 5-6 miles. I have only hiked here a couple times before so we will follow the map. If you do have experience with this location we welcome your input.

Please bring/wear appropriate footwear. Bring plenty of fluids and snacks.

Parking: We are using the Herrick Rd entrance. The entrance is on Herrick Rd which is west (1st traffic light) of the Main entrance and 200 yards south. From Naperville Rd and Butterfield Rd travel West on Butterfield to Herrick Rd. Turn L/South on Herrick Rd, travel approx 200 yards to parking lot on the left hand side. The lot has pit toilets.

Friendly dogs are welcomed and must be leashed at all times.

Hope to see you there.

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.
