Hike Eagle Creek Park

We will hike 5-6 miles in two hours or a little more, depending on our pace.  This is a fun hike, social as well as exercise-oriented.  You just need your sneakers or some kind of footwear that is suitable for hiking 5-6 miles, hiking-type socks, and water.  As the weather gets warmer, you should make sure to bring at least several bottles of water.

We will meet at the Starbucks about two miles east of the park on 71st Street at 10:00 a.m. and from there carpool in.  The Starbucks is in Intech Commons and the address is:  6335 Intech Commons Drive, 46278-1621.  If this is your first time hiking with our group, it is recommended that you meet us at Starbucks so as to avoid confusion.

We will plan to get to the Ornithology Center by 10:15 for those who want to meet us there.

      I will reveal and thus dispel the curiosity but it doesn't diminish the deserved reward.

    Weather was a little muggy and the trail a little muddy but thats part of the adventure. As usual Deb works hard to add some variety to keep the walks interesting and the company is always excellent. Thanks to everyone for continuing to make "meetup" a success

      Thanks for the kind words. We had a fabulous hike today, hot but not too terribly humid. And our hikers were so much fun on the trail!

      And the ice cream was great, too!

    First time joining the group tomorrow. Hoping for a rain free hike.

      Hi, Sergio, it looks like we will miss the rain this morning. If you can meet us at Starbuck's at ten, I think that would be a good way to avoid any confusion about making connections on your first Eagle Creek hike with us!

    Coming from the south side, so we will meet you at the Ornithology Center.

    Hi everyone, I am new here. Q: are well-trained on-leash dogs ok to bring?

    June 20, 2014

    • Sam S.

      they are welcome, you will likely not be the only dog owner on the trail
