Spring temperatures in the 50s–check. Interesting folks to walk and talk with–check. Trail with a variety of sights and sounds–check. Seems like Thursday is a perfect evening to come along with us on the Gateway Trail!
April 12, 2018: 7-8:30 pm: Gateway Trail at Flicek Park (Maplewood) – Hike Leader: Chris Olson
Join us for a hike along part of the 18-mile Gateway Trail, formerly a Soo Line (Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie RailRoad) rail line bed, that stretches from St. Paul to Stillwater. We’ll access the paved, multi-use trail from Maplewood’s Flicek Park.
Directions: Take I-94 to I-35E in downtown St. Paul. Go north on I-35E to Larpenteur Ave/Wheelock Parkway exit. Proceed on frontage road to Larpenteur Ave, the 2nd street connected to the exit off-ramp. Turn east (right) on Larpenteur Ave. Continue on Larpenteur to Parkway Drive (the third stoplight after leaving freeway), then turn northeast (left) onto Parkway Drive. Parkway Drive becomes Frost Avenue after crossing Arcade Street/Highway 61 in Maplewood.
Park at Flicek Park’s parking lot, 1141 Frost Avenue, which is about 7/8ths of a mile from Highway 61 junction with Parkway Drive/Frost Avenue. (Flicek Park is primarily baseball fields with a parking lot, located across from a pontoon boat store and a dog groomers.)
