Event details

This women-only hike will be a way to get outside for a quick fitness walk after the holiday season. Let the cool air and a mindful walk lead you to calmness. This naturalist-led hike may have a few stops along the way to enjoy the tranquility of the natural world. After the hike, take a moment to sip on hot beverages as we look out at the Des Plaines River. We will watch the birds, boats and busyness go by.
