Afternoon Hike

  • Nov 24, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Enter off of Butterfield Rd. Go right after the entrance and proceed to the end of the parking lot. We will meet by the Forest Preserve information sign. PLEASE CHECK IN WITH THE ORGANIZER, WHEN YOU ARRIVE.

This hike will take approximately an hour to complete.

We will wait 10 minutes and then proceed on this morning walk.

Herrick Lake Forest Preserve in Wheaton is home to a large variety of wildlife.

In the mature upland woods, stately 150-year-old white, red and bur oaks provide habitat for animals like woodpeckers, squirrels and owls.

I am planning on walking approximately 2.5 miles. This would be a combination of the Lake and Meadowlark trails found here. If there is enough interest we can increase our walk 2 miles and walk the Green Heron trail to take in more colors.

    I enjoyed the hike even though I met up with the wrong group. I ran into the Naperville walking group. I got there at 2:15 or so and was going to try to catch up to the DG walking group. I saw the Naperville group and thought that was the meet up group. We walked 5 miles.
