Easy Pace walk around perimeter of park on the Hawk Ridge Trail. . We will meet in upper parking lot (see photo with Blue X - Follow yellow road) which is just past the 25 MPH sign at the top of the hill.

You MUST Bring Water on our hikes, or you can't hike with us. We will be careful maintaining distances from each other. Some of us are in the high risk age group. https://www.stlouisco.com/Parks-and-Recreation/Trails/Queeny-Trails The attached trail map indicates that the trail must be traveled clockwise due to Covid.
