Starved Rock Mega Hike

Grab your hiking boots and head out to Starved Rock for their 2017 Mega Hike.  It's a great opportunity to escape from the clutches of the technology that binds us as well as embrace a renued connection with the outdoors.  

Starved Rock Park is a world apart from anything else in Illinois! You will know it the minute you enter the park, as you wind your car through the towering trees. Amazing waterfalls are active in the spring and after heavy rains.
