Wildlife Walk - Monkey Mountain Nature Reserve

October 27 (Sunday) Monkey Mountain Nature Reserve - Grain Valley, MO.  A hike through a variety of habitats (3 miles).  We will start with the South Trailhead and make a loop through the whole area.  This trail is of moderate difficulty and slightly challenging due to some uneven terrain.  This would be a good trail to try out or break in new hiking gear such as boots, packs, etc.  

Outings like this are one way our local Sierra Club group raises money to fund operations.  A donation of $3 would be gratefully accepted.

During the sign-in process all participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. If you would like to read the Liability Waiver before you choose to participate in an outing, please go to: http://www.sierraclub.org/outings/chapter/forms/ .

    What a way to spend the morning ... perfect weather, meeting new friends, and learning so much about the area. My thanks also to the lady at Quick Trip and guy on the motor cycle for directions!

    I loved meeting new people and others I hadn't seen for awhile. And, I really enjoyed the history provided by Ben and Ron. Btw, I did find old maps available for that area, supposedly in the Missouri Collection at the library. I'll go look at it next week... I hope to see you all, soon!

    When you click the GPS coordinates in Google Maps, the location is incorrect ... brings you to the Home Depot

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
