Meijer parking Lot - just north of trail along Wolf Road
Let's meet in the Meijer parking lot to the east of their building along Wolf Road. The Old Plank Trail is just south of the parking lot. We'll hike to downtown Frankfort and back. It is winter so we'll be able to see the houses, etc, along the trail.
If the group wants to, we can stop in downtown Frankfort for a cup of something hot and/or to use their clean, well-kept restrooms.
Right now, the forecast is for sunny weather, temperatures in the low teens with 11 mph winds. Dress for the weather.
Let's check out Centennial Park in Orland Park again. We were there back in February of 2021 when there was quite a lot of snow on the ground. There is a walking path around Lake Sedgwick. Crushed limestone through the wetland areas with prairie grass well above your head, paved path along baseball fields, grassy parkland areas. This will be about 3 miles total or 4 miles if we tack a little more on.
In Orland Park, take West Ave to the Centennial Park entrance on Fun Drive. Drive west on Fun Drive and take the first left into the parking area for Lake Sedgwick.
At present, the forecast is for temperatures of about 30 degrees, cloudy skies, no precipitation and wind of about 12 mph. Dress for the weather.
The photo is a sunset across the lake on July 4 of 2020.
