Illinois - Matthiessen State Park

Hi everybody! I'm Laura and I’m an Ambassador for GWH Illinois! I’ll be leading this hike. We will meet at the Fort at the end of the parking lot. 

Trail: 5 miles of well-marked, well-surfaced trails in woods and canyons, and maybe into waterfalls! 
Sights: You will marvel at the plant and animal life along the trails, and have an unparalleled view of geological wonders.
Admission: Free. For this hike, please do not bring dogs or small children. As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it, you’re good to go for all future meetups.
Bring: Please bring at least 2 L of water, hiking boots and nutrient
dense snacks.
