Short Hike/Guided Tour (Free) Of Historic Chicago Portage, Sat. June 2, 2018

Meet:  9:45 am in the parking lot next to the monument at 4400 S. Harlem Avenue.  Gary's tour starts at 10:00 am.

The tour is about 1.5 hours and 1.0 mile on gravel paths which can be muddy.

Please RSVP to my email (svinterlude@yahoo.com) by Thursday, May 31 since the guide needs to know if our group  is larger than 10 people.

We have a reservation at 12:00-ish for lunch at the Riverside Restaurant (Czech cuisine) at 3422 S. Harlem  (NOTE:  CASH ONLY).  I will let the restaurant know the exact number that morning when we meet.

Other notable treats in the area:  Weber's Bakery on Archer near 55th and Harlem - for the best donuts in Chicago.  Some of us eat to hike:  others hike to eat!
When:
Saturday, June 2, 2018, 9:30 AM until 3:00 PM
