Each year, RidgeGate teams up with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District to provide free, guided nature hikes throughout RidgeGate’s expansive bluffs trail system.

These hikes are led by professional naturalists from the district, and offer insight and education into the natural ecosystems within the open space at RidgeGate, while offering a chance to get some fresh air and exercise. Hikes are free to the public.

Habitat Exploration: Who lives here and why. Hike up the Willow Creek Trail and head west to join the East-West Trail at the top. Which species call this home? How are their requirements for food, water and shelter met?

Meet at the Bluffs Regional parking lot off of Crooked Stick Trail, south of Lincoln and off of Ridgegate Parkway. We’ll walk the Bluffs Regional Trail, so expect a moderate incline with little to no shade and a gravel path that doesn’t accommodate strollers well. Come dressed for the weather with sturdy walking shoes, drinking water, sunblock, hat and insect repellent as desired.
