Somme Prairie Grove
The parking lot is located on the north side of Dundee Road (Route 68), just east of Waukegan Road (Route 43).
If you’re joining us for an event, a volunteer leader will meet you at the Somme Woods parking lot at the advertised start time.
If you’re enjoying a hike on your own, notice the “Somme Prairie Grove” kiosk on the left as you drive in, and, behind it, a path. Walk down that path and follow the Somme Prairie Grove trail sign. Walk for one minute to the street corner of Dundee and Waukegan, where you can cross at the light, and enter the path system by the preserve signs.
Steward: Stephen Packard
Somme Woods has a large parking lot. In the winter, a portion of the lot may be closed, but the preserve remains open.
Stewards: Linda Masters, Matt Evans, Jim Hensel, Eriko Kojima, Steph Place, Sai Ramakrishna, Paul Swanson, and Stephen Packard
