4 mile, easy, flat, traverse in Eagle River. Lovely riverside trail with a spectacular waterfall near the end for our picnic spot. Treasures may be planted along the trail! Meet at Fred Meyer Muldoon Coffeeshop @ 5:45 PM to carpool & plan staging vehicles. NOTE: the bridge has washed out across the stream. Options include: crossing on logs that have been placed to span the stream, wear rubber boots to cross in the shallows, have a couple parents in rubber boots ferry kids across. This is #5 in a series of Family Dinner Hikes, which occur every other Thursday. Children are REQUIRED! The whole point is to get kids out on adventures, meeting other kids. Children, like adults, prefer to be with their peer group. I want kids to see other kids enjoying outdoor activities. Families with similar interests can then meet each other & make additional plans for outings together. People w/o children of their own are welcome to bring a neighbor kid, niece/nephew/grandchild, Little Brother/Sister, etc.--provided they have the parents' permission, of course.
