Take a Halloween Hike
The weekend before Halloween, get your kids in the spooky spirit with a candlelit hike. The guided hour-long walk goes through the Edward L. Ryerson Conservation Area, part of the Lake County Forest Preserves. Participants will stop to watch performances throughout the one-mile route. Kids of all ages are welcome and encouraged to wear costumes. The hike ends at a cabin, where little witches and goblins are rewarded with cider and doughnuts. Register online or call (847) 968-3321.
