Beer lovers and hiking enthusiasts, these 30 Chicago hikes are for you

Each carefully selected hike leads you through a stunning natural landscape or striking urban cityscape and ends near a brewery or brewpub where a local craft beer awaits you. This full-color guidebook features the best one- to five-hour hikes in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs and includes day-trip-worthy excursions in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin.

It takes you along the Chicago River and around lively urban parks, out to the banks of the Skokie Lagoons waterways, through the expansive forest preserves and grasslands of the Windy City's southern suburbs. It will also lead you up and down sand dunes on day trips across Indiana and Michigan state lines.

A family friendly guide to Chicago's historic heart and suburbs, the book will lead you to unforgettable experiences for all ages at the region's famous breweries. Each trail description includes details on access, difficulty, duration, points of interest, and, at trail's end, a recommended beer, with notes on its appearance, aroma and taste. You'll also get an inside look at the creative and passionate craftspeople behind the brewing process.

He loves sours and IPAs, clever wordplay, and hiking with his family.
