Schweitzer Woods Afternoon Walk
There is a nice mile trail going around the fenced in dog park. We will walk the trail, and then let the dogs burn off some energy in the fenced in off leash area. Schweitzer Woods is located at 16N690 Sleepy Hollow Road in Dundee between Illinois Route 72 and Sleepy Hollow Road. This preserve is an approved off-leash dog area. All follow all Rules and Regulations (http://www.kaneforest.com/fp/offLeashRules.pdf) regarding use of these areas. The property has oak forests, crop land, hay meadows and marshes on the 1.5 mile trail and woods within the fenced in area. The link to the Schweitzer Woods Forest Preserve map is below. http://forestpreserve.countyofkane.org/images1/Trail%20Maps/schweitzerWoods.pdf

What we're about

Public Group

We started this group to be able to leisurely explore the Parks and Forest Preserves in the Fox River Valley Area with our pug mixes - Guinness & Dunkel and other dogs while socializing with their owners for about an hour. We have walks on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons in winter (weather permitting).

We also offer walks on weeknights and weekends in the Fox River Valley Area during spring, summer and autumn. The walks are usually scheduled within Cook, DuPage, Kane and McHenry County Forest Preserves, parks and other suggested locations from members. If you are interested in walking your dog for about an hour and enjoying the scenery with responsible Fox Valley dog owners and neighbors, then this is the group for you.
