Talk:IL Lake County Forest Preserve Gander Mountain
07/03/08 If you happen to be a rebel and bring a bike, the Steep sections are the longest drops around, but be ready to have to climb the dirt road. Great workout, but I heard fines are $100 if you get popped. Come up the road on the way out and you should be cool.
Just an anecdote, (no need to include in page) a couple of years ago when hiking at Gander Mountain we surprised a wild turkey over near the top of the Wilmot ski hill. He flew all the way down to the bottom of the hill. He didn't exactly gain a lot of altitude since he was going downhill, but still I have to credit the turkey for flying a pretty long distance. - DaveC
