FEB 19: Valentines “Day” Trek – Bring your cutest cutie!

February 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

Dear Dog Trekkers:

Believe it or not, this is our SIXTH Valentines Trek! Where does time fly? (Being February, this will be weather dependent… so be sure to check in with Tom Skilling on game-day! haha)

More info will follow as we get closer. But for now, mark your dance card!
Membership is FREE… as is parking:

Info for new members:

1. The Basics: OUR CORE TREK IS THE GREEN BAY TRAIL NORTH FROM LAKE & GREEN BAY ROAD FOR ONE HOUR OUT AND THEN BACK FOR AN HOUR – FOR A TWO HOUR TREK: Everyone walks at their OWN pace. Usually big dogs are in the front followed by medium dogs and then small dogs. We almost always get pretty spread out. To repeat: We all walk out at our OWN pace and enjoy our dogs and … everybody yap’s at each other! Canine & human.
2. The Route: From the south going north: The Green Bay Trail is a forested, sometimes heavily forested, asphalt/gravel/dirt sided RR frontage with some gorgeous residential streets in the beginning and lots of well-groomed “hidden” parks. We start in Wilmette, walk through Kenilworth and turnaround in Winnetka. Tiger lily’s are everywhere in the summer, autumn colors can be fantastic, winter is dark and deep and spring is a… tease!

3: We meet, at 10 am, in the Wilmette Metra Parking Lot at its NORTH-END. Directly across from the Wilmette Fire Station. Parking is free on weekends.

4. Applicable outdoor masking & social distancing rules may apply. Currently, outdoor masking is purely optional.

5: FYI: Our Treks are ALWAYS scheduled for the THIRD Sunday of the month excluding January (too cold) and August (too hot). If the weather is REAL nasty we may need to do a late cancel. This is rare but it does happen. You will be notified by me/email, Tom Skilling and… Mother Nature!

Jim, fearless leader and cat herder [fourth class]

PS: After the trek… some have been know to tail-gate! BYOB! haha.

Jim the Human, Margo (in spirit) & Toby the Dog
