Summertime is moving along fast. Slow the pace down to savor every sunny second–hike, chat and explore Minnesota trails with us.
August 2, 2018: 7-8:30 pm: Luce Line Trail Hike (Plymouth) – Hike Leader: Chris Olson
Join the group for a hike along the Luce Line Trail, a “rails to trails” trail–63 miles from Plymouth to the small, west-central town of Cosmos. Originally built as the Electric Short Line Railway from downtown Minneapolis to west central Minnesota by Colonel William Luce, it was intended to capture the central Minnesota farm to market traffic and to provide transportation for people to downtown Minneapolis.
Directions: The trail parking lot is in Plymouth, off of 10th Ave. N. & Vicksburg Lane. Take I-494 to Carlson Pkwy. Exit & briefly go west on Carlson Pkwy., then turn right on Gleason Lake Rd. Continue on Gleason for just over a mile & turn right on Vicksburg Lane. Continue on Vicksburg about ¾ mile. The entrance to Luce Line is on the left, at 10th Ave. At the Cimarron Ponds housing development, turn as if to go into the development, then veer left into the parking lot, where we’ll meet.
