What we’re about
This group is for anyone interested in outdoor adventure. Our focus is broad and ranges from simple day hikes to extended outdoor trips on land and water. We hike, bike, kayak, backpack, and enjoy the great outdoors while we do it. We look out for and support each other in the wilds of the world. Lasting friendships are forged around our evening campfires.

This meetup will be cancelled in the event of predicted heavy rain, lightning, sleet or snow at the time the afternoon of the Meetup. I'm movings, so I'm prone to leaving town with little notice if any out-of-state homes come up for sale, so keep in mind that this event may also be cancelled for that purpose.
- Garden of the Gods LoopGarden of the Gods Recreational Area, Illinois, IL
Come join me on a hike through the beautiful Shawnee National Forest as I host for the first time. I intend to hike the 6.4 mile Garden of the Gods loop. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 2 h 41 min to complete. This is a very popular area for hiking, horseback riding, and walking, so you'll likely encounter other people while exploring.
This trail is part of the River To River And Garden Of The Gods trail system. Featuring Arch Of The Gods, Anvil Rock, scenic vistas, many waterfalls, rock formations, forest settings and wildlife. Used by both hikers and horseback riders. During certain seasons the trail can get muddy in places due to horse traffic. Moderate trail with some uphill and stream crossings. Great for backpacking or spending a day exploring. Waterfalls only active during wet seasons.
8am: Meet at Lowe's to carpool.
Drive to Shawnee (approximately 1 hr)
9am: Meet at trailhead.
Hike the loop (3 hrs)
What to bring: basic day hike necessities (water, lunch [I'm sure we can find a lovely cliff to sit on], sunscreen, etc.
