Let's Take a Hike at Sag Valley Trail To Save The You Know What !!!

Let's take a Hike. This will be a 8.5 mile hike (the yellow loop). We will try to make it in 3 hours. Please dress accordingly. The terrain is hilly with uneven, sometimes narrow trails. If it rains this week the trails will be muddy. Don't forget to bring water and snack for the hike.

We will meet at 8:45 and start the hike at 9:00 sharp.

We will meet by the Port-A-Potty at the end of the parking lot.

Swallow Cliff Woods (North) is 1/4 mile West of La Grange Road/96th Ave (US 45) on Cal-Sag Road (Rt 83).

Also, A couple of my friends are breast cancer survivors and they are participating in the Avon Breast Cancer Walk in Washington DC in April. I decided to schedule one hike every weekend until their walk to raise funds.

I will ask each hiker that joins me on my hikes for a $2 per hiker contribution to donate to my friends goal.
Thanks

After the hike, we will head to Irish Legend in Willow Spring for a bite.

    What a fun hike! It was also good to meet fun people! The weather was perfect, and hiking on the snow made it more of a workout. Thanks Oscar for leading the hike.
