Nature Walk in Fullersburg Woods

Let's hike at Fullersburg Woods!

This place is really lovely and Chicago Green & Eco Living (CGE) group went to this forest preserve twice last year.

It's a relatively short hike (between 2 and 3 miles) and we will be going in a relaxed manner to enjoy the surroundings. However, we may take some additional small routes if we are still in a mood.

The walk will be a perfect place to connect with nature, as well as to socialize, discuss "green" topics, and make new like-minded friends!

This event is a joint event with Chicago Green & Eco Living (CGE) group so expect more good people join us for the hike!

Direction: Turn to the main entrance to the park from Spring Rd. Park your car on the parking lot by the Visitor Center. We will be gathering right behind the Visitor Center by the river. The picture above is showing where exactly we will be meeting.

Special notice: This is an outside event that subject to a weather conditions. An message will be posted on the event page if it will be canceled, otherwise we will be meeting as it planned. Please check your email or the event page, if doubt, before arriving.

Also, some of us will come earlier for Sunday Morning Tai-Chi Practice. For more info and to RSVP: Meetup.com/ChicagolandTaiChi

Please use "Comments" area in the bottom of the event page to offer/ask for rides and post any general questions or comments.

    Thank you, everyone who joined us at this lovely day for the walk!
    Because some of you asked about Chicagoland Green and Eco-living (CGE) meetup group, which is the original group to do our Nature Walks, here is a shortcut link: http://www.eco-living.us
    Thanks, Anu, for sharing so many great photos on this page. It would be great if you could share at least some of them on the corresponding CGE event (http://www.meetup.com/eco-living/events/127053172) also. Thank you!

    I'll film a commercial instead of hike. Sorry to miss this but glad waiting list gets a chance to hike!

  • Ann S.

    Hi. Is there enough parking at this spot or is there alternate parking?

    July 18, 2013

    • Vadim

      It has a good size parking lot. If it's enough for everyone it's hard to say. It might be an incentive not to be late! :) For more info about the parking or similar questions please contact their visitor center: http://www.dupagefore...­

      July 18, 2013

    • Jonathan J.

      They do have a decent size main lot. There is also some parking on the street and a 2nd large lot by Graue Mill which is only maybe a 10 minute trail walk from the main parking lot. It is part of the forest preserve. http://www.grauemill....­

    Hi, This sounds like a lot of fun. I would need a ride, though. Is there anyone driving from the Evanston area who would be willing to carpool?

    July 15, 2013

    • Rebecca

      Hi Tami! I'm driving from Evanston. Send me a message, and maybe we can carpool.

      Hi Rebecca! Looks like I've got a schedule conflict at that time after all :-( I really appreciate your offer of possibly carpooling, though. Hope you have a great time.
