5-5.5 mile hike out of Calvin R. Sutker Grove

Calvin R. Sutker Grove

PLEASE NOTE- THE ADDRESS OF WHERE TO PARK IS NOT 9877 WOODS DRIVE. YOU SHOULD PARK ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE STREET FROM THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM WHICH IS AT 9603 WOODS DRIVE. The hike will be leaving from the Calvin R. Sutker Grove, on Woods Drive, near the Illinois Holocaust Museum. There are beautiful tree canopied trails, with mostly crushed limestone surface. I am seeing if I can generate some interest in this hike. It is actually much nicer than the one I do on Wednesdays out of Irene Hernandez on Foster, in Chicago.

If no one signs up by Sunday evening at 6 PM, I cancel the hike. If you sign up please come, or at worst call me before 8AM on the day of the hike.

Please note, a change, to beat the heat, we will be starting at 8:30 AM. We will leave from Irene Hernandez Family Picnic Area, which is on Foster Ave about 4500 west, in Chicago. This is the farthest south point on the North Branch Trail which goes all the way up to the Botanic Gardens. We will leave at 8:30 AM, I will give 5 minutes leeway for late arrivers. The walk will be an out and back, 4.5 to 5.5 miles. To be honest, the scenery is much less interesting than Palos, but hey, it's close to where I live and there are some wooded trails near the river!
