Social Gathering Before/After

Come join us for a new route out of the southwest 'burbs! This mixed terrain route starts out of Willow Springs heading south across the Valparaiso Moraine. Eventually you'll head west across the Kanakee River to Seneca. In Seneca you'll cross the Illinois River and turn east to follow the route of the old I&M Canal back to Willow Springs. At the finish you'll be rewarded with a socially-distanced gathering at Imperial Oak Brewing, convenientely located right across the street from the train station.

For this route I tried to stick to roads as much as possible, but at certain points I couldn't avoid a short stretch on crushed limestone trail. These points are noted on the route. That said, if trails are your thing, I created an alternate route that takes full advantage of the trails. You can find that route in the GLUC route library if you're interested.
