Starved Rock one-way hike (12 miles)

  • Sep 23, 2012 · 10:30 AM

Join us for a one-way hike (12 miles) at Starved Rock State Park. Because this is a one-way hike, there are NO options to shorten. We'll meet somewhere near the visitor center, and then we'll pile into as few cars as possible and drive to the end of the park. From there we will begin a 12-mile hike back to the visitor center, stopping in all the canyons along the way.

Exact meeting location: TBD

What to Bring: At least 2 liters of water and a lunch or snacks to eat on the trail.

Waiver: Read this waiver. By attending this hike you and your guests agree to the terms and conditions of the waiver.

    This will be a strenuous hike. Starved Rock has lots of hills. I strongly recommend wearing hiking boots. It will take us approximately 5 hours to finish the hike.

    Why does the event say "needs a location"? Is the Starved Rock location not confirmed?

      We are hiking at Starved Rock, but I need to figure out some logistics. We may not be meeting at the visitor center, but another parking lot, instead. I will email those attending later this week.
