Beginner Hike on Pike Isle

This is quite a fun hike and I anticipate we'll be done within 2-1/2 hrs.  Note, I made this a early evening, hike at dusk!  This is a completely flat hike.

Click Here to have a look at the Park Map.

Hike Length: ~6.0 Miles

Hike Speed: varies

Elevation Change: None!

Dogs: Yes, On-Leash

*** As always you DO NOT have to RSVP NO  ***


The parking area is about 2 miles from the Park Office/Visitor Center.  Head toward the boat-launch.  Look for Shelter B / Pavillion.

For those GPS-type people, here are coordinates to locate the parking area:

Lat[masked] (44°53'3.8580"), Lng[masked] (-93°10'[masked]")



Fort Snelling State Park entrance is located East of Post Road off State Hwy 5.

>>> We are NOT meeting at the Fort.  <<<

From the South:

Post Road is two exits from the Mall of America (one exit from I494/Hwy5 interchange).

From the North:

You can take Crosstown/Hwy 62 (East) or Hwy 55 (SouthEast)


W 7th Street which turns into Hwy 5 heading South

      OK, then--how about at the big parking lot for the main Visitor Center/Fort, Gretchen?'s totally in another location, so then we'd have to zip over to Post Rd and the Pike Island entrance?

    Happy Friday afternoon! The forecast for the weekend looks really good for Sunday. Please remember we ARE MEETING AT SHELTER B, and there is MN State park fees. Take a peak at the Park Map - Page 2 to locate the picnic area shelter!
