Welcome to Midwest Hiking and Adventures! Everyone is welcome in this group as well as all skill levels. We will do things locally as well as regionally. We will focus primarily on hiking but will throw in other adventures from time to time, such as a day trip or weekend getaway.

Walk at Oak Park Mall

Barnes & Noble

Cabin fever has hit and I need to get walking, yes even at the mall when its this cold. As much as I dislike to walk at the mall, I hate being a slug even more. And we all know the time goes faster and its more enjoyable with friends!! We'll go 6 laps around the mall(about 4 miles), 3 downstairs and 3 upstairs. There will likely be a faster and slower group as we start walking. You can stay longer and walk more if you like. The mall closes at 9pm. (As soon as the weather gets warmer, we'll hit the nature trails again)

Morning walk on the Tomahawk Trail starting at Ilan Park

Let’s walk on the paved Tomahawk Trail. We will walk a total of 5 Miles. It is a beautiful trail!
