This meetup's purpose is to bring together like-minded outdoor lovers in the Rochester area.  Sure, there are outdoor groups in the Twin Cities but wouldn't it be nice to have a local group to get together with to share interests such as hiking, biking, skiing, boarding, camping, blading, amusement parks, get the idea.

Events may or may not be child friendly.  You are welcome to bring your children if the event seems appropriate.  Please keep in mind that the group may not pace itself for children's needs.  Pets are also welcome where appropriate.  Olmsted Co parks have restrictions on most hiking trails.  Minnesota state parks allow pets but they must be leashed and controlled.  Some hiking trails are not well suited for pets due to their narrow nature so please think about that before bringing a pet.  Please consult with the event runner as they have the final say.

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.
