Come out for some hiking and fresh air!

This is the weekend before Starved Rock does their Eagle Watch Weekend. We will meet at the Visitors Center and start from there at 8:30am sharp. I intend to hike about 7-8 miles. The visitor center opens up at 9am and we will have the opportunity to use the facilities before we head out.

We can hike the trails along the river to hopefully see some Eagles, but we can also head into any direction that interests us. Please wear sturdy hiking boots or shoes and it might be a good idea to wear waterproof shoes. The trails may be frozen, but they could also be wet or muddy. The trails vary in types of terrain and will included crushed limestone, paved, dirt and even some awesome stairs! Dress for the weather and bring plenty of water. Let's hope we get to see some eagles!

As we get closer to the event, I will be checking with the visitors center to see how their events have developed.

Please bring:

Clothing Layers

Plenty of Water

Hiking shoes or boots, waterproof is recommended

Snacks
