Jan 11 - Tower Grove Park Walk

Meet in the circle on Center Cross Drive.

To get directions use this search "Center Cross Drive, 63116" on Google Maps http://maps.google.com/

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. . 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.

FROM MISSOURI The easiest and quickest route is to follow one of the interstates/highways to the Park. South County Area ? Take I-55 north to I-44. ? Take exit # 288 named ?Grand Ave Exit?. ? When exiting the interstate, make a left at the stop sign onto Lafayette. At the first stoplight, make a left onto Grand (heading south). ? You will immediately pass over I-44 and The Compton Heights Water Tower is on your left. ? Turn right onto Magnolia Avenue. At the first stop light, make a left into the Park.

North County Area ? Take I-170 to Highway 40/I-64 East. ? Head east on Highway 40/I-64 and take exit #36A named ?Kingshighway South?. ? Go south on Kingshighway for approximately 1.5 miles to Magnolia Avenue and turn left onto Magnolia Avenue. As you are heading south on Kingshighway you will pass under I-44. ? At the first stop light, make a right into the Park. I-44 ? Head east on I-44. ? Take exit # 287A named ?Kingshighway?. ? Go south on Kingshighway for approximately 1 mile to Magnolia Avenue and turn left onto Magnolia Avenue. ? At the first stop light, make a right into the Park.

    It was a nice walk in spite of a little snow now and then.

    I heard back from some of our walkers and it sounds like most of the snow has been removed from Tower Grove Park. So unless it is raining at 9 am we will walk. You might want to wear boots to keep you feet dry or at least bring an extra pair of shoes and socks.
