Veteran's Day Hike @ Lebanon Hills

Let's get some miles in and honor our Veteran's!


While some of us never have walked the path/s that our Veteran's have, we can still honor them. We'll put our boots to the ground in honor of those who have protected us over the years and decades. 


Please consider joining me. We'll be hiking on unpaved, dirt/grass paths, so please wear appropriate footwear. Depending on the weather it could be muddy, snowy or in the 50's, so please dress in layers or what you feel most comfortable in. The hike will take us 3-4 hours and there will be some slight elevations, but nothing more than 50 feet.

    Thanks to Lee Anne for taking the lead on this hike because I was late. I apologize to everyone for being late and just know I don't make a habit of being late for my own event. I'm usually just a little bit early, but on time. Bad, Sue!

    It was great meeting new people and greeting people I haven't seen in awhile. Looking forward to seeing some of you at the next event.

    Sad I can't come after all. Darn migraine! Enjoy everyone. It's a nice place to hike.

  • Sue

    Yes Coby, it's going to be a windy one today and we'll be outside doing as you say "Share whats important in life." Don't let the wind scare you off the park is fairly well protected with lots of trees, and there are still leaves on some of them. IF anyone has an idea on where to go afterwards please feel free to share, as I'm not super familiar with the area.

    I would be interested in some trail running at this park, but have no idea if anyone else would be up for that.

    November 8, 2013

    • Dan M.

      Ben, you in strong/good shape, like to run? If so you probably more in the high 4s (for strong runner) to high 6s for average runner. I'm in avg to fair (at best) and can withstand a 7 min mile (which is approx 4.3 mph maybe at least on a treadmill) I only just started again a few weeks ago, in my prime (20 years old, I was a 5.5 min mile (approx 6 mph pace) sustained over 2 miles in army PT tests. (those were the days.... :) )

      VB has been extended. So unfortunately I'm going to have to miss this entirely.

    Just a reminder to everyone that dressing in layers is best when hiking. This way you can shed as you get moving and warm up. Have a good base layer that is moisture wicking, then a warm mid layer, and the top layer should be a good wind barrier jacket. It will be in the low 40s but windy Saturday. The best way to not get cold is cooling down by shedding or unzipping layers before your body sweats. See you all Saturday afternoon!

    I have a commitment in south Minneapolis at 3:30 — would it be okay if I just partook in half this hike?

    November 7, 2013

    • Sue

      Not a problem Bekhi.

    How long is this hike in miles? I'm a bit out of shape but want to work on getting better -- but I also don't want to slow others down or get in their way.

      I don't know exactly which Trail Sue is going to be hiking but based on what I have done at this park and where Sue is starting from, I would expect the hike to be 5-6 miles.

      November 3, 2013

    • Sue

      Sharon, because we have so many people attending we'll have a couple of options...some will be for those who want to head back and do a shorter route.
