Guided Hike

April 2 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

the River-to-River Trail Society will once again offer a schedule of guided hikes in and near the Shawnee National Forest. All hikes are free and open to the public,  and typically average about four hours in length. Although the hikes vary in level of difficulty, all are intended for people in good health who have done some hiking in the past. Hiking sticks and boots or sturdy shoes are strongly recommended. All hikers should bring their own water and a snack. No dogs, please.

Fink Sandstone Barrens in Johnson County or across the road at Jackson Hollow in Pope County, depending on certain scheduled activities of the USDA Forest Service. In either case, hikers should meet at East Trigg Trailhead, on Trigg Tower Road, about one mile north of Trigg observation tower and three miles northeast of Simpson, Illinois. Bill Gilmour will lead
the hike. For information or directions, call (270) 331-1553.
