Hadley Avenue & 103rd Street, Cottage Grove, MN
(if there isn't enough snow)
The Grey Cloud Dunes Scientific and Natural Area was acquired by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource in 1998.
Grey Cloud Dunes Scientific and Natural Area is a rare prairie with dunes rising in waves cresting 10 to 20 feet.
Minnesota Scientific and Natural Areas protect rare, fragile, communities of plants and animals, as well are unusual geology.
Tread lightly. Understand the regulations that help protect these unique areas. One of the rules is NO DOGS ALLOWED. If there isn't enough snow we'll hike and there are some other "interesting" but simple rules to follow.
For more specific info on the Dunes area please click HERE.
There is a small parking lot at the corner of Hadley Avenue and 103rd St., and at the end of 110th Street.
Click HERE to get to a map link to help find the area easier. There isn't an address to enter and because of that I do expect people not familiar with the area, to get a little lost. So we'll wait for about 15 minutes and and start out at 1pm.
