Hike to the Cabin Challenge – Rotary Forest Preserve
Saturday, December 20, Anytime between 1:00-4:00 pm
Who knows what the day will be like closing in on the shortest daylight hours of the year. You need to accept whatever old man weather’s challenge may be and come out for this “hike to the cabin.” Through snow, rain, sleet or hail the hike is about a half a mile through the woods, but you won’t end up at grandma’s house. The destination is a little cabin where there will be a nice fire inside to enjoy. Bring something to cook over the fire if you wish, a story to tell, poem to share, a joke and then explore the winter wonderland surrounding the cabin in Rotary FP. Escape the pace of the season and slow it all up for a while. Free, but you must call for reservations: 815-335-2915.
