What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Let's hike at Red Gate Woods. We will hike at a 3.5MPH pace. Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome, but we will not wait if your dog, like mine, has to stop and smell everything.
Dress in layers. Brisk walking makes it feel 10 degrees warmer than the actual temperature. Bring a snack and water. We will stop at the halfway point and take a break. We will probably hike 6-8 miles.
Join a Forest Preserves staff member for an evening walk through the woods.
All visitors over 2 years of age must wear a mask indoors at all times. Unvaccinated visitors should also wear a mask outdoors when physical distancing (six feet from other people) is not possible.

We will stop at the halfway point for a break and snack. Dress in layers as you will warm up as we go.
As always, if you RSVP and are a no-show, you will be banned from future hikes with me.
