Announcing a new Meetup for The Minneapolis/St. Paul Backpackers Meetup Group!

What: Lake CR 301 to Rossini Rd - NEW portion of Superior Hiking Trail

When: Friday, April 16,[masked]:00 PM

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

Greetings Backpackers!

Want to check out the new portion of the Superior Hiking Trail? Chad and I will be co-organizing this trip. We will hike 22 miles from the Hwy 301 parking lot and hike south to Rossini Road.

This is an INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED backpacking event. Please have knowledge of gear and being in the wilderness for several days. Remember everybody hikes at their own pace, but we are still a group and it is expected that we look out for each other!

If you sign up for this trip, please be flexible to a schedule change in the event of group decision. We have a jam packed weekend, so please be open to waking up early so we can start hiking by 8am on Saturday and Sunday. Depending on the availability of campsites and/or group needs the mileages of each day may vary slightly.

Depending on the number of people to sign up for this trip, I might hold a meeting to discuss carpooling, gear etc. Closer to this event, I will send out an email with the final details.

No dogs will be allowed on this trip for safety reasons.
You will be responsible for your own food.
A state park sticker is required. These can be purchased $25 for the whole year.
Due to wear and tear on the driver?s vehicle, the driver does not pay for gas. The gas costs will be split between the passengers.

Julianne has been an awesome organizer who has paid to keep this group up and running for years! We all owe her a huge thank you! She has never asked for donations, but I feel it is only fair that each person chips in a dollar or two here and there to help keep this amazing group going! This is not mandatory?only a suggested donation for those going on trips. Any bit helps!

Tentative Agenda:

Friday, April 16th ? All carpools should meet at the Rossini Road Trailhead (See Map A of the SHT map set) at 4pm. We will shuttle cars and start our hike from the parking lot at Hwy 301 and hike our way to the Sliver Creek Campsite (1.1 miles)

Saturday, April 17th ? We will need to get an early 8am start. We will hike ~15 miles to the campsite closest to the Knife River.

Sunday, April 18th ? We will hike ~5.5 miles to the Rossini Road Trailhead. We will shuttle, get dinner and drive back home.

We look forward to seeing you there!
