* From St. Paul, go 9 miles east on I-94, then 7 miles south on Highway 95 and 3 miles east on County Road 20.

Once you are in the park, take the road all the way to the end (it’s a very long road!) Park and join us near the picnic tables.
Cost: Free, but you will need a State Park Pass. A day pass is $5, an annual pass is $25
What should I bring?
• A mat, towel or scarf for your yoga practice
• Water
• Bug-spray
• Small backpack to carry your belongings
• A smile and a friend!
What else do I need to know?
After our yoga practice, we will end at the beautiful beach. There are picnic tables, charcoal grills and a long dock at the beach if you wish to spend some time getting to know your fellow yikers after class!

There are two areas to take a restroom break along the route. All levels of yogis and yoginis welcome. The hike and yoga practice will be challenging, but we will offer modifications throughout practice.

    Between weather and some stuff that's come up at work to prevent an early departure, I'm afraid I'm out. Hopefully next time!

    Hey folks, we're still going to go on with the hike! It'll be muggy and hot! You may need to jump in the st. Croix to cool off after! If muggy/hot aren't for you, we'll see you next time. (-:

    I love the fact that it is at Afton. Lake Elmo Park Reserve is another one of my favorites. very convenient for those on the East side.

      Is there a reason for selecting Afton rather than Fort Snelling or something closer to the metro area?

    Hi folks, we may be rained out tomorrow. The chance of rain is 80%. We may need to reschedule. Depending on how things look, I will cancel by 2 pm if it's a no go.

      thanks for planning on an early decision. It's a long drive for most of us, to Afton...

    Is there a click-able Map that I can rely on above? It only says "Needs a location By the picnic tables, inside the park. Take the road all the way to the end."

      There isn't a great map. From St. Paul, go 9 miles east on I-94, then 7 miles south on Highway 95 and 3 miles east on County Road 20.
      Once you are in the park, take the road all the way to the end (it’s a very long road!) Park and join us near the picnic tables.
