5595 Grand Drive, St. Louis, MO
This is a NO HOST hike. If it works, we can make it A REGULAR THURSDAY EVENING EVENT while we have enough daylight.
Some of our members have asked for this, we'll try it and see if it works.
MEET AT THE VISITORS CENTER STEPS (above), and walk about 1.5 miles around the Grand Basin, then past the Boathouse and back to the Visitor's Center. Paved trail, some hills, sometimes crowded.
Allow about 1 hour for this slow paced hike. Group will leave promptly at 6:00, arrive a little early and look for the dog packers.

Use map feature above, if you need a map.
I've never hiked this, so any comments regarding it would be most appreciated. I will watch the weather and cancel, if necessary. Some of our members are familiar with Forest Park, hopefully some of them will sign up.
If anyone would like to volunteer to HOST this hike, let me know and I'll set you up.
I don't know the trails. Would suggest that you print a map from the above link and take it with you. No one will actually be LEADING this hike, you guys just work out the route. Try to stick to the basic outline for this first one, then you can let me know where you would like to go and we'll change the hike description for future hikes.
This is something new for WCDW, I usually know what I'm scheduling. Not this time. Just check who is attending, look for them (or their dog) and make your own hike. Please keep your RSVP current for this, otherwise it won't work and I won't repeat it. If you're late, the group will probably leave without you.
