The Des Plaines River and River Forest

From the first Indigenous people to our Cook County Forest Preserves, the Des Plaines River has been a major part of the history of River Forest. On this walk we will explore land and history along the river, think about many who have passed along, and see what they've left us. We will begin and end at Trailside Museum, a community landmark.

Tickets are $10 (or $8 for members) and may be purchased in our online store or by phone at (708) 848-6755. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water if desired.


Group tours on other dates may be booked by special arrangement. Contact the Museum for more information. No refunds will be given for reservations cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the event.
