Alpine Runners Fall Trail Running Tour - Poplar Creek Trail
Sunday, December 01, 2019, 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM
Poplar Creek Trail
Barrington Road Pond Picnic Grove
Hoffman Estates, IL
Registration is not Required
Meet at 8:00 a.m. this Sunday at the Poplar Creek Trail in Hoffman Estates at the Barrington Road Pond entrance.
(Please note that this is a different location than we have met at in the past.)
There is a real bathroom there (hopefully it's still open). The main trail (red on the map) is an 8.8-mile loop, so you can't get lost as long as you stay on the red trail. Of course you can do more or less miles as needed. It's paved and slightly hilly, but nothing extreme. There are a couple of porta-potties on the route, unless they put them away for the winter.
I don't have an exact address for your GPS, but if you put in Barrington Road Pond Picnic Grove, Hoffman Estates, it comes up in Google Maps. It is on the west side of Barrington Road just south of Higgins Road. Here's a link to the forest preserve map:
