Deer Grove Forest Preserve
Time & Location
About the Event
Sunday Jan. 3rd I will be hosting probably a hike at Deer Grove Forest Preserve in Palatine. If it snows by then I'll get additional options out to you.
The hike will start at noon. To get their, google map the route if coming from far. Otherwise, get to Dundee road (68) and Quentin. At that intersection, head north on Quentin and take a LEFT at the entrance to the Preserve.
When you stop at the fork in the road, turn RIGHT and continue to the END of that road. Do not pull into other parking lots along the way. The road will dead end at our parking lot where we'll meet at the posted trail map.
If you're interested, I encourage you to download an app by Under Armor called Map my Walk. No matter where you are hiking if there is a trail, it should show on the app and as you start your walk/hike, it will show you walking. If at Deer Grove you wanted to get back to the car and not continue as far as the group, you can easily see the trail that will lead you to our start. No more getting lost even without the map.
I would also encourage everyone to take a picture of the trail map at the start to have that on your phone. I always carry a printed map when I ski or hike so have included the link below. It shows the different "color" paths and along with this app you'll know exactly where you are at all times. Also tells you at the end the time and distance you've walked which I love.
See you there on Sunday at noon.
