Urban Hike: The Olmstead Vision


Last weekend, I tried a hike at Wallace Falls. I don’t think my knee was quite up to the uneven terrain. I feel like I’m ready for longer walks and hikes though, so I dragged Nick on an urban hike from the Arboretum to Volunteer Park via Interlaken on Saturday. Our 4.5 mile loop took us on some surprisingly wild hiking trails, to the Volunteer Park Conservatory, the water tower, and the Grand Army of the Republic cemetery (where 526 Civil War veterans are buried). Throw in lunch at the Volunteer Park Cafe and we had one heck of a day!
