Hike at Buffalo Creek Forest Preserve - 3.5 miles

Is it over?  Can we come back outside now?

This is a 3.5 mile path.  It's a mostly gravel path so there shouldn't be any mud to worry about.

Lunch at Portillo's afterwards for those wanting to eat.

See you there!


To get there - take Arlington Heights Road north from Lake Cook Road.  Turn left onto Checker Road and then take your first left into the parking lot.

    After 150 people from an event that was ending when we arrived blazed the trail, it left us with less than ideal hiking conditions. The trail was sloppy, slushy, slippery and it was loaded with doggie poop, (I'm amazed that so many people don't pick up their doggie poop). Oh well, that's my rant for today!!! I had a great time, it was a beautiful day, great hike with great company.

    Nice to get outside again; too bad the forecast for Sunday is cold.
