Road Scholar
Program #4267RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

A great trip with a great bunch of participants and leaders! Relax on the Illinois River, hike the beautiful forest and sandstone canyons, tour the lock and dam, and ride the mule-drawn packet boat on the I and M Canal. A good opportunity to enjoy and learn about all these things.

It was a very worthwhile program, our 17th. There was a nice variety of activities as well. Kim & Bonnie were great as leaders.

Very well organized trip. A little long on Wednesday-traveling on Wednesday hard if you are driving any distance.

If you dream of a day on the river in a beautiful paddleboat, this is for you! A relaxing trip back in time.
