Raceway Woods used to be the home of Meadowdale Raceway in the 1950s and 60s. It was later converted to a Forest preserves. Parts of the old racetrack track can still be seen and explored while hiking in the area.
This is a great time to enjoy a short MINI drive, an historic and scenic spot, hang out with MINI friends, and have a casual cookout.
WRAPUP: Great weather, fun drive, good eats, and hanging out with MINI friends.. what could be better? We had a group of 8 MINIs take the backroads to get to Raceway Woods where we were joined by another couple MINIs. We took over the cooking area and had a fun afternoon eating, visiting and checking out the trails. Huge thanks to Rus and Tawana for the drive route planing, and Craig and Beth bringing the grill and attending to the cooking duties!!
