Herrick Lake hike

  • Jul 9, 2013 · 6:45 PM

We'll be hiking the trails at Herrick Lake in Wheaton. The trails are relatively flat and wide. We'll hike approx 6 miles which should take us 2 hours. Herrick Lake is located on Butterfield Road (Rt 56) approx 2 miles west of Naperville Road. About 2 miles north of 88 and five miles west of 355. Turn right after you enter. We'll meet at the end of the parking lot.  Don't forget water and a snack if needed. 

Please read the Waiver in the Files section. By attending this hike you and your guests agree to the terms and conditions of this waiver.

    Arrived late due to several traffic backups, but hiked the lake loop several times until I met up with Bridget, Dennis, and Leebenseng at the end of the group hike. Looks like a very well maintained set of trails and preserve, with well behaved geese and ducks patrolling the lake. They even have recycling containers for fishing lines and hot barbecue coals..(the preserve does, not the geese and ducks)

      No, I'm not that good at hiking. Just a day hike, but it's up there as a favorite spot. It would be fantastic to summit though . . . have you done that?

    Beautiful and unique forest preserve, nicely maintained easy trail and just the right amount of miles for today.

    I tried to get there, but my daughter had to pick up both my husband and son from work at 6 pm and I couldn't get them fed and to the car to get there in time. I hope you have a great hike, and I'll leave next time as soon as they get through the door.
