Mystery Caves State Park EventTravel Companions meetup group is hosting an event at the Mystery Caves/Forestville State Park to tour the caves and participate in a Volksmarch (non-competetive hiking event) on August 1st at Noon.
Visit Forestville State Park in Southeastern Minnesota. One hour Mystery Caves tour ($10), visit an historically accurate re-created 1899 town ($6), and participate in a Volksmarch ($2) (non-competitive hiking event).
I'll be going down Friday night and staying over, if anyone is interested in joining me.
This is a 2 hour drive from the Twin Cities. So car-pooling would be recommended.
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 1500+ 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.
