Hike on Poplar Creek Trail - 2.6 miles

Let's do the 2.6 mile Poplar Creek Trail.

http://fpdcc.com/downloads/maps/pdf/pc_trailmap.pdf

It's the Brown trail dotted on the map.

This is a short hike but I have no idea how deep the snow is on the trail so it might be quite a trudge.  But let's get out and kick winter in the butt!  

Please do not come out unless you have some sort of snowshoes / yaktrax / stabilicers, etc.  This is an unpaved trail full of snow and ice.

The entrance is on 59/Sutton Road on the west side of the road - in between Shoe Factory Road and Golf Road.

Use this map - the Meetup generated one up above is completely off.

Park in the first available spots since the trail is near the road.

Let's get something to eat at Steak N' Shake afterwards - at 59 and Irving Park Road.
