New Meetup: Banning State Park with some Buddies

Announcing a new Meetup for Friends of BWCA Trails!

What: Banning State Park with some Buddies

When: Sunday, August 29,[masked]:00 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Banning is a gorgeous state park on the way to Duluth, just minutes off I-35 near Sandstone. It's known for its location along the Kettle River amid dramatic sandstone rock formations with lush lichens, liverworts and mosses.

We'll be leaving early on Sunday to explore this gem and get ready for the fall trail clearing season. Banning is a little farther from the Twin Cities than some of our other hikes, but it's well worth it. It's about a 90 minute journey and we'll be carpooling. The longer drive is well worth the beauty that awaits. It's a great way to ease into your week.

This won't be a training hike so there's no need to bring your backpacking backpacks. However, bring enough water to keep you hydrated (about 2 liters) and snacks to keep you fueled. Depending on how everyone feels, we can explore the local food establishments on the way back.

Hope to see you on the trail!
