I appreciate all your ideas and expressed interests for different walks. I just scheduled a walk for Lake Harriet this Friday, after seeing that a lot of people want to walk there.
Just an FYI. Sometimes, either my assistants or myself aren't able to schedule a walk that a lot of people want to do, maybe because they can't find the time to host it.
However, feel free to email people interested in the walk, and you can just meet, without it having to be an official event. Or you could be a one-time host for a walk, just let me know, and I'll set it up for you. Don't let us organizers get in the way of you getting together with other people to walk with.
Join us to meet local people who like to walk. Walking is so much more fun with other people, isn't it? We'll be walking different trails and parks around and outside the St. Paul/Minneapolis area.
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 hikes but just walks. If there are enough people to do so, we'll split into a brisk and a leisurely group.
Use the "Suggestion" tab for proposing a specific walk to host on your own if there's not already one near you. With 2,000+ people, there may be others nearby who would like to join you.
NOTE: To avoid favoritism, we do not do any charity walks, and any such events will immediately be removed.
