Springbrook Prairie - 8-10 miles

  • Springbrook Prairie Forest Preserve

    29w128 83rd st, naperville, il, Naperville, IL (map)

    41.735081 -88.191589

  • Meet up at the Pavillion off of the parking lot on 83rd Street (Across from the golf course entrance)
  • I plan to hike 8-10 miles or so...

    We will leave PROMPTLY at 9:00 am. This walk will take a couple hours...depending on the desired speed and distance. I intend to keep it at about 4 miles per hour, if you want to go slower, please state so in the comments so that people who would also like to go at that pace know they can pair up with you. We could start to run out of sunlight, but we should be able to complete our walk.

    Trails

    The preserve’s trails stay to the perimeter, giving visitors wonderful views and wildlife extra privacy. Over 7 miles are open to hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders, and cross-country skiers; 2 miles of narrow, mowed trails allow visitors, except bicyclists, a closer view of the preserve’s natural features. Sections of the trail may be closed during key bird breeding seasons to protect critical nesting habitats.

    Please bring:

    1 liter of water and snacks
    Decent walking/hiking shoes...Waterproof is a good idea WICKING SOCKS ARE BEST

    Dress in layers and according to weather forecast
    Good attitude
