Take a 'Romantic Night Hike' with a Friend or Loved One at Fullersburg Woods Feb. 7, 8, 15 & 16

More nights offered due to popular demand

(Jan. 21, 2020) — Enjoy a night in nature with someone you love on a “Romantic Night Hike” from 7 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 7, 8, 15 and 16 at the DuPage Forest Preserve District’s Fullersburg Woods Forest Preserve at 3609 Spring Road in Oak Brook.

Take a self-guided hike with your sweetheart or friends on lantern-lit paths that meander through an oak forest, pausing on scenic bridges to listen to the soothing sounds of the rolling waters of Salt Creek and in historic shelters along the way. Then warm up at the end of the trail with hot chocolate and a cozy fire for roasting marshmallows.

“Make it a truly memorable Valentine’s Day by experiencing the magical beauty of the forest preserves at night with your sweetheart or friends,” said Fullersburg Woods naturalist Keriann Dubina.

Many people return year after year for this high-demand program, which is perfect for couples or a girls’ night out, she said.

“The woods are often blanketed in snow, and our staff sets the scene for a beautiful winter escape far from a mundane night out,” Dubina said. “This program is one of Fullersburg Woods’ most popular for adults.”

“Romantic Night Hike” is $10 per person and is for ages 18 and up. Register online or by calling 630-850-8110.
