Join us to meet local people who like to walk. Walking is so much more fun with other people, isn't it? Having a group to walk with also makes going to remote parks feel more safe. This Meetup is for adult-only, no-pets walks. We'll be walking different trails, parks and neighborhoods in, around and outside the St. Paul/Minneapolis area.
Because Meetup.com charges the main organizer about $180/yr in hosting fees (that's true for every Meetup group on the platform), please chip in $5 or $10 annually once you have attended your second walk. This optional but appreciated amount puts the cost burden with the people who actively make use of the info on the site. There is a "Chip in now" button; it will lead you through the simple process.
People ask about bringing their dogs; since there are lots of factors involved, please leave your dog (or any other pet, for that matter) at home. This Meetup is about walking and talking with (adult) people.
Keep in mind these generally are not vigorous hikes but just walks. If there are enough people to do so, we'll split into a brisk and a leisurely group.
Use the "Suggest a New Meetup" tab for proposing a specific walk to host on your own if there's not already one near you. With more than 3,700 people, there may be others nearby who'd like to join you.
NOTE: To avoid favoritism, we do not do any charity walks, and any such events will immediately be removed. Also, this is a not a business networking group; therefore, please do not pester people with sales pitches. Thanks for understanding!
