Hike/Snowshoe-Jon Duerr FP
Hike or snowshoe--
Snow covered trails/grass paths. Wear winter hiking boots. Snowshoeing is still possible. Poles are optional.
Enjoy 1 or 2hr+ options--Riverbend Trail to waterfall &/or "over the river and through the woods" to Tekakwitha. Fox River Trail toward S Elgin may be possible. We will have some wind protection from trees-but dress for breezy/sunny conditions. Temps may rise near freezing by noon. If we are lucky, we may see an eagle or bluebird (you may wish to bring binoculars.) Easy to moderate pace.
