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.

A Walk Under the Full “Harvest Moon”:Harvest Moon –reflect on a bountiful harvest. Hike up to a breathtaking overlook to experience the rising moon (7:24pm) in our favorite resting spot. What are you grateful for? Sunset’s at 7:18pm, so we’ll be descending by the light of the full moon, using our human night vision. Parts of the trail are steep, so wear appropriate footwear and bring walking sticks as needed. Flashlights if you choose.

Meet at the parking lot on the south end of the baseball fields at Prairie Sky Park, on the north side of Crossington Way. We’ll walk the Willow Spring Trail, so expect a moderate to a briefly steep incline with little to no shade and a 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.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES. REGISTRATION DETAILS TO BE POSTED 1 WEEK PRIOR TO HIKE.
