Group departs from the hotel lobby of the Lodge with a knowledgeable guide to see canyons and bluffs made from St. Peter’s Sandstone. If you’re part of a guided hike in the spring or early summer, there is a good possibility you will be able to see seasonal waterfalls. The guide describes to the group how Starved Rock got its name along with other tales and truths. The hike is considered strenuous as there are many stairs and uneven terrain. Please dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. Hikes are about 4.5 miles round trip. Lunch includes: your choice of turkey, ham or veggie wrap, bag of chips, homemade granola bar, piece of fruit and a bottle of water. Advanced reservations are required as space is limited.
