A Hike at Queeny

Where to meet: We'll meet on the WEIDMAN ROAD SIDE.
SHORTLY AFTER YOU ENTER THE PARK THERE IS AN AREA ALONG THE ROAD WHERE PEOPLE PARK. LET'S TRY PARKING THERE ALONG THE ROAD.

This will be a moderate to easy 4 mile hike on the Hawk Ridge Trail. It takes approximately 1.5 hours.

What to bring:
- WATER – THIS IS IMPORTANT ALL YEAR LONG AND ESPECIALLY IN THE WARMER MONTHS. WE WILL USUALLY BE OUT FOR AT LEAST 1 ½ HOURS AND THAT IS TOO LONG TO GO WITHOUT REPLENISHING THE LIQUIDS THAT YOU WILL BE BURNING WHILE WALKING. – I AVOID DRINKING CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES BEFORE WALKING. THEY DRY ME OUT AND MAKE ME HAVE TO URINATE MORE. THE ARE A LOT OF GOOD ARTICLES ABOUT “effects of caffeine and exercise” ON THE INTERNET OR ASK YOU DOCTOR.
- Dress in layers (not sure what the weather will do). The top couple of layers should be easily unbuttoned or unzipped to allow easy ventilation. Wear a hat.
- I recommend broken in hiking shoes over Tennis shoes. A lot of the trails are over loose gravel and dirt and the treads on the hiking boots work much better.
- Snacks – EAT LIGHTLY BEFORE THE WALK AND BRING A POWER BAR OR SNACK TO MUNCH ON DURING THE WALK.

After the hike we will meet at a local restaurant for conversation and food.

Meetup Donation: Meetup charges me $72 every six months to have the Walking site. If you would like to donate $1 at some of the walks, it will be appreciated.

    Had a terrific time! Born and raised in St. Louis, I never went onto those trails because I never knew they existed! What a positive, eye-opening experience it was!

    Hopefully I'll be able to find you easily at Queeny. I drive an old white Ford F150 with a camper shell and ladder rack, so you'll undoubtedly spot me first. If so, please wave!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
