Just because it's cold outside, doesn't mean you have to stay indoors. Join REI's professional guides this winter for a unique hiking experience through the carved and frozen canyons of Starved Rock State Park. We will hike throughout the park, exploring all the geologic wonders along the way, ending with a climb up Lover's Leap to look for eagles nesting and fishing on the Illinois River. Throughout the day we'll teach you a few tips to make winter hiking more comfortable and enjoyable. Bring your sense of adventure! REI will provide transportation, lunch, hot drinks, and winter hiking equipment.
