The Millennium Trail is crushed limestone to Singing Hills, and is paved
from there to Round Lake. (The segment to Round Lake will be new for many.)
Much of it runs through Lake County Forest Preserves. It is not a rail
trail. It is mostly flat with some gently rolling hills and one or two
moderate hills. It is mostly open with a couple of shady spots to stop for
a break. The weather is expected to be milder than this past Saturday.
We'll ride about 12 miles out and back (total ~25 miles). (You can always
turn around at Singing Hills for about 15 miles.)
Where: We'll meet at the Lakewood County Forest Preserve near Wauconda.
When: Saturday, 6/24 at 9 AM. Please arrive about 15 minutes early to
prepare and sign in.
How: Casual speed, no one left behind.
Directions: Take Barrington Road/Rt 59 north to Wauconda. Go right/east on
Route 176, then right/south on Fairfield/V61. You will see a sign for the
winter sports area of Lakewood Preserve on the left. (Don't be fooled by
the main Lakewood entrance on Rt 176.) We'll meet at the parking lot
