Walk with me!
A great way to meet with friends and respect the safety protocol of social distancing [6’] and wearing masks!
I would like to challenge my fellow club members to explore all the beautiful Lake County Forest Preserves – one new preserve every week with the option of 30 or 60 minutes hikes.
Each hike will start on Thursday mornings at 10 am. Approx trail lengths are added to each hike.
Sign up for length and day of hike by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday at noon the week of the hike.
You will be paired with a buddy to walk in pairs and not as a group. We are asking everyone to keep social distancing, bring their own water bottles or walking sticks and it is a must to wear a mask.
If you complete 7 of the hikes marked with * you can log your hikes with the 2020 Hike Lake County, and receive a commemorative zipper pull, or a shield for your walking stick or a commemorative dog tag for your 4-legged family member.
