“The Cal-Sag Channel (short for “Calumet-Saganashkee Channel”) is a navigation Canal in southern Cook County, Illinois. It serves as a channel between the Little Calumet River and the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. It is 16 miles long and was dug over an 11-year period, from 1911 until 1922. The western 4.5 miles of the channel flow through the Palos Hills Forest Preserves, a large area of parkland operated by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County.” (A copy and paste from Wikipedia.) Recently the FPDCC paved a trail along the channel between Route 83 on the west end and Cicero Avenue, Route 50 on the east end.

Thank you, Tim and Mary for organizing the ride along the Cal-Sag Trail and the post-ride get together at Dell Rhea’s Chicken Basket, a very enjoyable afternoon in May. Above is my pre-ride photo of the group. Thank you, Kim for taking the photo below at our turn around point.
