West Chicago Creek Road Professional Review and Guide
"If you like off-trail adventures to obscure peaks, this is your adventure. Private
land makes this an interesting route. Unlike most hikes in this guide, the bulk of
this adventure is done in the thick of treeline—make sure you are confident in
your navigation skills before embarking on this one."
