Thursday night hike - Fort Snelling

Looking to stretch your legs, maybe carry a pack, and see wildlife along the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers?  Join us on a hike around Pike Island at Fort Snelling State Park.   This time focus is on camping head lamps.  During a break I will be showing several headlamps and discussing pros and cons.   Find out which one is right for you and your trip this summer.  Distance 3 + miles, duration little less than two hours.  Bring hiking shoes, quart of water, snack, and clothing appropriate for weather.  Watch this posting for update - in case of high water, we will meet at Minnehaha Falls.

    Yes, this hike is still being held in rain, come prepared! We might shorten it to an hour if it pours really hard. Purpose of our hikes is to train - the more you train, the less discomfort you will have on the trail in BWCA - where you might have to hike all day long in inclement weather. Pike Island trail is closed due to high water and we will take the Minnehaha trail instead. The flashlights demo is postponed to future hike. See you at the parking lot by visitor center.
