Hiking for Health & Happiness

Monday, June 5, 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, Mark Livshots, MA, LPC

RSVP below to register.

Hike will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.

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.
