Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Here are thirty of the best hikes, nearly all of them within an hour’s drive of Chicago—from spectacular forests, grasslands, and wetlands to dunes, moraines, and even canyons. The Windy City offers a surprising array of outdoor opportunities, many of them accessible by public transport. Whether you’re in the mood for an easy nature walk or a day-long hike, this guide offers plenty to choose from:
 
• Northern Lakefront Trail
• Jackson Park Trails
• Deer Grove Loop
• Busse Woods Elk Pasture Hike
• Ryerson Woods
• Morton Arboretum
 
Each hike features full-color photos; a brief route description; thorough directions to the trailhead (GPS coordinates included); a detailed, full-color trail map; and at-a-glance information on distance and difficulty level, hiking time, canine compatibility, and fees and permits. Inside you’ll also find a Trail Finder that categorizes each hike (e.g., for attractions such as views, and if it’s suitable for families with kids); Green Tips; and information about local lore, points of interest, and the area’s wildlife.

Format: Paperback
We have lived on the north shore of Chicago for 30 years and driven by many of the hiking locations but never stopped to enjoy them. We have a lab named Murphy and wanted some information about new adventures we could have with him. This book lays out lovely hiking spots many of which are within a half hours drive of our home. We are able to check before we leave the house to see if the location allows dogs. That is a big help. The individual descriptions of the trails is also very helpful. As members of the nearly retired generation we are not looking for difficult hikes but of course this is Illinois so the topography is quite gentle. Never-the-less we were very pleased to find some elevations changes on our first hiking adventure. The trail was exactly as described in the book and so we were prepared...
I would recommend this book to dog owners...for sure.
