Veteran's Day Hike

  • Louisville Swamp

    3801 145th Street West, Shakopee, MN (map)

    44.738117 -93.598850

  • Meet in the parking lot
  • This hike has been very popular in the past and I'm hoping it will be again.


    We hike around the bottom lands of the Minnesota River. Along the route there is varied terrain, creeks, lakes, old farm houses, a very large rock and of course interesting company and conversation.


    The parking lot is small, but easy to find. Go south, towards Mankato on Hwy 169. After the stop light at 169 and Hwy 41 there will be a brown and white sign that indicated "The Swamp" is coming up and will be a right-hand turn. If you are familiar with the Renassaince Festival the road backs up to the west side of the Festival grounds.


    "Hope to see you there. This is also the start of our annual food drive. Please consider bringing a non-perishable food item to be donated to a local food shelf. We usually run this food drive until the end of December. There are always people less fortunate than others who deserve a little extra boost at times. - Sue"

    Hi- I am new to this group, but not to that trail. The Louisville swamp loop is about 5.7 miles, and can be hiked at a brisk pace in under two hours, or run in about 70 minutes. I suspect a big group will take 2 1/2+ hours though.

    How long do you think this hike will be in terms of time? Is it ok to bring dogs?
