We’ve added another March hike and thought you’d like to know. It’s next Thursday, the 22nd, led by Chris Olson, so check the details below and mark your calendar.
By the way, today is the Ides of March, so everyone, let’s be careful out there! You may want to join our safe group for the Lebanon Hills Park hike tonight–no stabbing allowed, even if your name is Brutus.
March 2018 Hikes
March 15, 2018: Lebanon Hills Regional Park Hike (Eagan)) – Hike Leader: Linda Quammen
Join us for a hike within Lebanon Hills Regional Park’s glacial moraine landscape with almost 2,000 acres of woodlands, prairies, lakes and ponds. We’ll circle some lakes, check out the new shelter, talk easy tree ID and current park projects.
Directions: Take I-35E south to the Cliff Road exit and go east on Cliff Road 3.6 miles to the Lebanon Hills Regional Park Visitor Center entrance (at the Hay Lake Road North intersection), which will be on the right. Follow the road to the Visitor Center and meet in the parking lot close to the Visitor Center.
March 22, 2018: Midsection Gateway Trail Hike (Maplewood/North St. Paul) – Hike Leader: Chris Olson
Join the group for a hike along the midsection of the scenic Gateway Trail in Maplewood and North St. Paul, in eastern Ramsey County.
The trail follows an abandoned Soo Line (Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie RailRoad) rail line from just north of downtown St. Paul to a park just north of Stillwater. The western section of the trail goes through suburban areas and mostly residential neighborhoods.
Directions: From Highway 36 east of I-35E, take White Bear Ave. exit. Go south on White Bear Avenue a few blocks to Maplewood Community Center (east side of road), 2100 White Bear Ave, just south of County Road B intersection. (If you’re driving south on White Bear Ave. and pass under a large pedestrian bridge, you’ve gone too far.) Meet at the south end of Community Center parking lot near Ramsey County Suburban Court building (2050 White Bear Ave).
