Hiking for Health & Happiness

Monday, October 16, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT


Ryerson Wood Forest Preserve – Brushwood Center

21850 N. Riverwoods Road

Riverwoods, IL 60015

Research demonstrates that outdoor exercise, such as hiking, offers health and well-being benefits. Join us outside the Brushwood Center for a nature meditation followed by a two mile hike. Please arrive no later than 11:00 am, wear comfortable hiking or running shoes, bring a water bottle and dress for the weather. The hiking terrain is not paved and we may encounter irregular surface paths – all part of the beauty and joy of the hike!

Presented by: Kimberly Matthews, MA, LCPC, Megan McMahon, PhD

RSVP below to register.

Hike will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.

Trail map can be found using this link: Forest Preserve Map

Meet outside the Brushwood Center entrance by 11:00 am – promptness is important so allow time for walking from the parking lot!  Brushwood parking lot and Brushwood Center can be found on the Forest Preserve Map above.  Please note: take the first left to Brushwood Center when you enter the forest preserve.
