Third Annual Holiday Brunch and Messenger Marsh hike

  • Messenger Marsh Dog park

    16211 S Bell Rd, Homer Glen, IL (map)

    41.594196 -87.924995

  • First parking lot, just east of Bell Rd. south of 159th St.
  • Weather permitting, we'll take an easy hike starting promptly at 10 a.m. around the two crushed limestone loop trails east of Bell Rd., about 3 miles. Note: this is NOT Messenger Woods, nor is it just a dog park! See info and links to directions and trail map at

    Then, let's celebrate the holidays and another year of woods walking!  At 11:15 we'll meet for brunch just up the street at Blueberry Hill Breakfast Cafe, 14355 S. Bell Rd, Homer Glen (on Bell just south of 143rd St.).

    Brunch will happen whether or not we hike so you are welcome to just come for that. I need to let Blueberry Hill know a few days ahead how many are coming, so when you rsvp for this meetup, please specify if you are coming for just the hike, just the brunch, or both.

    No charge for this meetup but obviously brunch is on your own. Also no attendance limit, the more the merrier.

    Just the brunch.

    I took a month off to get some rehab for my back and hip. This sounds not only like fun but a good starter back into hiking. I won't commit for sure until Sun or Mon.
