What: Richardson Farms Corn Maze Hike
When: November 1, 2009 12:30 PM
Richardson Corn Maze
9407 Richardson Rd
Spring Grove, IL 60081
We’re off to get lost in the Richardson Farm Corn Maze. This is the largest corn maze in the U.S. and it’s the last day the maze will be open for the season. The maze is spread over 33 acres and has 13.1 miles of trails. Maze admission cost is $11.50. Not sure how many miles we will actually “hike”, but plan on spending approx. 3 hours at Richardson farms. There are also other things to do/see at the farm, like:
• 700ft zip line (extra $15)
• 50’ tall observation tower (free)
• 50’ long slide (free)
• Corn cabin (free)
• See more info at http://www.richardson...
I have not been to Richardson Farms before, so this will be new for me. For the maze, it will probably work better if we split into somewhat smaller groups (5-6) and maybe set a meet up time in the middle of the event, but we can determine this on site.
After the farm excursion (around 3:30pm) we’ll go to a nearby restaurant for snack/early dinner (for those interested). If anyone knows of anything especially good nearby, let me know.
Richardson Farms is in Spring Grove, IL (about 1:15 min from downtown Chicago). Directions to Richardson Farms can be found on their website http://www.richardson.... Let’s plan at meeting at the CORN CABIN at 12:30pm (we will wait 15 min. for stragglers). We'll then buy tickets and go in. EVENT WILL BE CANCELLED IF THERE IS A HIGH LIKELIHOOD OF RAIN. Give me a call if you need more info/directions 312-404-2750 (John).
