Hike along the Mississippi River

  • Sep 21, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Keep my number with you that day, just in case... [masked] Call or text me if your plans change at the last minute and you can't make it. I can only check the RSVPs up until 1pm, so it would be nice to know we don't need to wait for you.

This trail is a relatively rugged dirt trail for much of its length, with grades. 2.5 miles in length one way; the 5 mile roundtrip Winchell Trail is a hiking-only trail on the west bank between Franklin Avenue and 44th Street. Unpaved trails break away from the main trail along the bluffs and cut into the woods, permitting additional exploration of the Mississippi Gorge. One section takes the hiker down to the river while another crosses an oak savanna restoration. Some sections are rugged and may be muddy after storms. There are also a number of stairs along the route.

Between 38th Street and 44th Street the Winchell Trail is paved and is separated from the bike path.

    I was really excited to walk with this group today but it is lightly raining by me in st. louis park. Sorry for the last minute cancellation. I hope you do this hike again soon. Can't wait to meet everyone!
