Meetup Description: County Rd 70 to Otter Lake Rd (22 miles)
This trip will continue from about 7 miles further then we finished on Memorial Day Weekend. I want to make sure we have a water source at our Saturday night camp. This time, we will start at the County Road 70 portion of the trail and make our way 22 miles down the trail to the Otter Lake Trailhead parking area on Sunday.
We will drive to the County Road 70 parking area and hike into camp ?2.2 miles? (make sure you bring water, there is no water source for another 2 miles).
We will hike ?13 miles? to the Woodland Caribou Pond campsite.
We will hike ?8.7 miles? to the Otter Lake Trailhead where we pile into the cars and go to a restaurant.
*Please be open to changes with the schedule. We might discuss as a group to hike to the parking lot sooner then planned for some extra time in town.
We will discuss this event more at a meeting I call the ?pre-pack meetup?. During this time we will discuss gear, where to eat after the journey, shuttle route, gas and meals. The meetup will be at the ?Lebanon Hills Visitor?s Center? in Eagan. More details will be posted soon.
IMPORTANT: If you are going on the trip, but are unable to attend the planning meeting, we need you to contact one of the trip leaders before the planning meeting to make sure they have obtained the necessary information from you. Failure to attend the planning meeting or respond to e-mails from trip leaders may result in your being removed from the trip.
