Now that there is enough beer out that way, the CBES will ride the little-known Salt Creek Trail through bucolic western Cook County. This idyllic trail quietly winds its way through forest preserves, parks (regular and industrial), golf courses, side streets, hydraulic facilities, and parking lots. We will stop first at Lunar Brewing in Lombard, then go on an x-clusive CBES-only tour of the Flesk brewing facility and end at the deceptive Church Street Brewing (which is actually on Industrial Drive #C). Its a few miles from there to the Wood Dale UP-West Metra stop. It is anticipated to make the 6:27 train back.
43 Miles. Portions of the trail are crushed limestone.
NOTE: Unfortunately, no food at any of the stops, although both Lunar and Church Street are BYOF and there are restaurants right next to Lunar.
