Summer Groove Pre Father's Day Hike (Overflow from Madeleine's Sunday Hike)

We scheduled this hike on Saturday to give those on Madeleine's waiting list a chance to experience R. T. Anderson and hopefully have enough parking space.

There are some serious elevation changes in this park, but the vistas of the river they afford are worth it.  Lots of birds, too.  Get ready to climb and take your breath away (in every sense!)

Difficulty: Strenuous - the initial steep climb out of the valley is not for the faint of heart.

Wear hiking boots with vibram style soles for traction, hiking poles would be useful. Be sure to bring drinking water and perhaps some trail snacks.

We'll hike rain or shine, unless there is dangerous lightning.

Remember to be polite to your fellow TC Hiking members - if you can't make it please change your RSVP to NO by 8:00AM so that those on the waiting list will have time to be notified. Be forewarned that No Shows will be added to the dreaded No Show list.

    I'm glad that Arjun's dog improved and that he was able to join us.
    We had a great group of hikers. Thanks to all of you that joined us this morning.

    We had a great group of energetic hikers, good weather, decent trails, and only a few mosquitoes.

    I'm so sorry to cancel last minute. My dog is sick and I have to take him to the vet. I hope I can join the next time you go out

    I won't be able to make this hike after all but I'm not quite sure how to change my "yes" RSVP. I went back to the original and responded to the RSVP again with "no," but I have the feeling that might not be enough to allow someone else to take this spot. Sorry!

    I am on the southeast side of Minneapolis so if anyone is interested in carpooling let me know. I can drive or I can catch a ride with someone.

    According to the map, it looks like there's only about 18 parking spots. Better carpool!

    I am sorry that I have to cancel my participation on Saturday a.m. - Graduation is earlier in the day than I expected. Carlton College. I hope to meet up with the group sometime before I leave on Wednesday.
