North Branch Trail Ride-Saturday
August 13, 2016
9 am

We will start out heading south on the trail. This loop will take us down to Caldwell and Devon. We will turn around and have a short bathroom break at Bunker Hill Forest Preserve and then head back to the parking lot. This section will be about 16 miles. This should put us back at the parking lot for Harms Woods between 10:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. We will have another short break during which time any riders wanting to ride only the north section will have a chance to sign in. We will ride north and into the Botanic Gardens--if the weather is nice, it will probably be quite crowded. We will lock our bikes and the group will have time to walk around the Gardens, eat lunch or a snack, and enjoy the weather! I am willing to spend whatever amount of time the group agrees to at the Gardens and then ride back to the parking lot. If you are in a time crunch please feel free to ride back when you need to. Please let me know if you are leaving at a different time than the group. The north section loop is around 18 miles. This will make the total mileage 34 but with the breaks I think it will be very doable. Casual pace and this is a very well marked PAVED

Starting Location:
