Reservoir Woods Early Evening Hike


There are several starting points to Reservoir Woods, but we'll meet at the gate at the end of Alta Vista. We'll hike through a portion of the cemetary, back into the woods, onto the prairie, through the "Big Woods", through the tunnel and towards the dog park, but turn right before getting there. Then it's back through the tunnel and instead of taking the paved path we're going to jump off it and into the woods. We'll hike through the woods, hike up through them before coming back out near the parking lot. Another adventure! We should be able to get in about 3+ miles on this hike.


DIRECTIONS: take Larpenteur Ave to Dale Street and go north. As soon as you turn you'll see a left hand turn lane. That's Alta Vista so you'll want to go left there. Take that down and then up the hill to the end where you'll see two stone gate ends. That be it. The parking lot hold about 6 cars and there is room to park on the street.

    Sorry such late notice. Work is usually slow on Friday. Didn't anticipate being late. Hope to get to another hike close to home. Have fun.
