New Meetup: Hike Waterfall Glen

From: Melissa
Sent on: Tuesday, September 22, 2009 3:34 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The NW Burbs Camping Meetup Group!

What: Hike Waterfall Glen

When: October 3,[masked]:45 AM

Waterfall Glen
S Cass Ave & northgate Rd
Darien, IL 60561

Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve

This hike will cover the 9.5 mile loop that surrounds Argonne National Laboratory in southern DuPage County (Darien).

This DuPage County forest preserve is named after Seymour Waterfall and there is no real waterfall in the preserve, just some water flowing over a small dam that we probably won?t go by.

~ hiking distance: 9.6 miles
~ hiking time: 3-4 hrs
~ hiking difficulty: Flat to hilly terrain, some steep sections

The main entrance is on Northgate Road. From I-55 west (signage may read south but you will be heading southwest) past both 294 and 83 (Kingery Highway) to Cass Avenue. Take Cass Avenue south to Northgate Road (I think it?s the 2nd right), right on Northgate and then 400 feet to the parking lot.

We?ll meet at one of the picnic tables between the trailhead sign and the restrooms.

We will meet at 9:45a and the collection basket will go around for the optional $1 donation. We will hit the trails promptly at 10:00a.

Bring something to drink and snack on while walking. We will take a mini break half way through.

More info about this forest preserve can be found at: /PRESERVES/waterfall glen.html

Optional $1 donation collection
