Hike Waterfall Glen: An Energetic 8-10 miles

DIRECTIONS: Lemont Road and 101st Street. From I-55, take Lemont Road south to 101st Street. Turn Left at the light (101st Street) to the parking lot. Meet by the information Kiosk.

There is a detour for part of the trail for repairs that the forest preserve district will be doing over the winter.  I am not experienced at this location, so we can either gain experience together or learn from others who come along!  (Renae...I know you have been here many times and I am open for suggestions, if you would like to share).


Preserve Features

• Gently rolling to hilly terrain with some steep sections • Popular cross-country ski trails • Additional unmarked paths to explore on foot • Prairies, savannas, oak-maple woodlands, scenic overlooks — home to 75 percent of plant

    Really Manisha, Do you have to sign up for EVERY Hike that I'm on. Spending more time with me will just make me HATE you more. At least here I can ditch you and Rhonda since you both walk like little girls, the Hike is a big girl Hike with you little girls on it. I'll show up at 11:30 so that way we can finish the Hike at the same time.

      NO, Sunday October 28, at 11:30. I don't plan on walking that fast, else I would start on Friday November 2.......... I'll bring Chocolate (w/ almonds) only if Rhonda bakes a cake and brings me a piece.

      October 22, 2012

    • Rhonda

      I don't even know what to say! I will just save you what was left from the cake this past Saturday.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
