This area is our furthest-out map in the northwest suburbs. We haven't been here since 2002. Come see what's changed... :)

Take the Northwest Tollway (I-90) 10 miles west of O'Hare to Roselle Rd. Turn right and go 1 mile north to Algonquin Rd. Turn left and go 13 miles northwest to Route 31 (Main St). Turn right and go 5.7 miles north to Route 176 (Terra Cotta Ave). Turn left and go 1.7 miles west to Walkup Rd. Turn right and go a quarter mile to the parking near the shelter. Watch for the orange-and-white orienteering signs.

Public Transportation:
The first Metra train leaves Northwestern Station at 10:30 a.m. and arrives Crystal Lake at 11:53 a.m. Sprint two blocks north to Veteran's Acres and register before the noon cut-off.
