Wildwood's popular Cabin Fever Hike will occur Saturday, Feb. 23. With the event limited to 200 hikers, it's time to quickly reserve spots for those who want to participate.
There is no cost involved with this outdoor experience, but participants must register—which began Jan. 7. Click here to register. After the first 200 hikers register, city officials indicate a waiting list will be formed.
The Cabin Fever Hike again will offer two hikes:
- A nine-mile round trip
- A six-mile round trip
Hikers can add a mile to either hike by exploring the recent extension of the Al Foster Memorial Trail. Individuals at the registration check-in point can answer any questions and offer suggestions.
The event begins and ends at the Al Foster Memorial Trailhead, located a short distance from Glencoe City Park.
Directions: From State Routes 100 and 109, go south on State Route 109 to Old State Road; make a left onto Old State Road, then an immediate right turn onto Washington Avenue. Drive straight, and you will soon see a large white tent on your left side, which serves as the check-in point. If you arrive early enough, you can park on the gravel parking lot in front of the tent, or choose to park on the asphalt parking lot at Glencoe Park, a short distance away.
The Cabin Fever Hike has a rolling check-in/start time. Participants can check-in and start the hike any time between 7:45 a.m. and 9 a.m. Breakfast will be offered at the trailhead in the form of bagels, granola bars, fruit, and beverages, including hot drinks.
