We're a meetup of 20's & 30's looking to go on outdoor adventures with people our age. If you're looking to hike, kayak, rock climb, snowboard or any other outdoor activity this is the group for you. Also, we are looking to expand in to weekend camping trips throughout the Midwest. -Matt Q
Via this group, I hope to create an inclusive, friendly, and welcoming environment to connect people through hiking and other activities. To achieve this, we need help from all of you. So please be kind and nice, be active and respectful; don't hesitate to reach out if you have any ideas or suggestions, or want to be involved as an event organizer.
We do not charge for our events. The organizer and co-organizers help fund the group. All the event hosts are doing this on volunteer basis. We only have a few strict rules. No-shows will not be allowed in future events. Avoid changing your RSVP at the LAST minute -- These are to make sure everybody has their fair share of going. And, be a decent human being -- We have no tolerance toward any kind of bullying, discrimination, or harassment. //Thao
Join us for hiking at Kankakee River State Park. Enveloping both sides of the Kankakee River for 11 miles, in an area 6 miles north west of Kankakee, the park consists of approximately 4000 acres.
We will walk at a pace of ~20 min per mile. We will walk south for 2 hours and then turn around and head back on the same path. Estimating ~10 miles in total including breaks. At the end of the hike at 1:00, stay for an optional social distance picnic.
Will check the weather the day before and if rain is in the forecast, then will reschedule. Be sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes, bring snacks and plenty of water. Park in the main parking lot at the main north entrance to the park.
