Wildcat Mountain - Discovery Hike!!!

Here's another Mystery Hike, although this time I know where we are going FROM, I just don't have any clue what lies between the parking lot and wherever we will turn around. 

We will begin at the Park and Ride at the intersections of 17 and 17a in Tuxedo Park. It is 7 miles south of Chicago Uno where we can carpool from and will dine afterwards. Meet at 9:45 if you want to carpool on the north side of Chicago Uno. Map: http://mapq.st/1kyimiO

This looks strenuous on the map, and of course, right at the beginning. I would advise for NO BEGINNERS. I'm hoping for a 5ish mile hike. It could be more if the weather is glorious and the group is up for it. I do not see a 'light hike' like we did this past weekend but the trail the non-mountain goats took would certainly be an option but we will be in a separate location, a few miles away. If one of those that did it want to do it again I'd welcome a 2nd group. We will dine as always afterwards.

Bring water, camera, light lunch or heavy snacks, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and as it is tick season do a full-body tick check when you get home. Hiking boots mandatory. Remember this is a discovery hike so please bring your sense of adventure!!! Charlie, there will be ups, downs, sun, rocks, UPS, and awesome company. You have been notified. :-) There will also be BEER afterwards. :-) :-) 

$2 Meetup fee unless it's your first or over 50 events with me. Please send me your cell, I will return with mine. I DO NOT text, please no texts. Bad weather changes things, stay tuned.

    This was a great hike. It was a good warm up for the summer weather that is coming. Dinner was fun as always.

    Okay, I was exhausted but it was the good kind of exhausted! Very pretty hike with the usual great company and beer (and food) afterwards. And you are welcome for the sun - it was my pleasure!

    Another great hike has been added to our Great Hike List!!! Besides the one really great view spot we had a very pretty hike with a couple of nice little streams and a beautiful waterfall at the turn-around spot. As always the people made the day and this was no different. We enjoyed a yummy meal at Chicago Uno afterwards. We earned it!!!! Thanks everyone for being part of a great day, and especially to June for bringing the sun. Don't forget to do a tick check tonight. Yeah!!!!

    Hi All, The weather forecast is better, but if it gets worse Plan B is Beacon Second Saturday for later in the afternoon, including stops at The Hop and Max's for dinner. Do check back later tonight and in the morning before you head out!!!

    The weather forecast for tomorrow is questionable, but if you look at the hourly forecast our timeframe is not the T-storm time...stay tuned in case it gets worse. Get your sun-dancing shoes out and get them going!!!! TGIF!!!!
