Get in the "Spirit" and Get in Costume for a Halloween Hike!
Let's get in costume, meet up and hike the paved trails of Hidden Falls and Crosby Farm Parks along this section of the Mississippi River. Expect to hike about 2 hours at a moderate pace.
• Its Halloween, but it's still a hike: drinking water, a quick-energy snack, footwear suitable for hiking on paved and unpaved trails and clothing appropriate for the season are a good idea. Sunset and civil twilight will pass as the spooky things come out (and as we hike) so a headlamp or small flashlight is recommended.
• We are a hiking meetup, not a party meetup: if you are under the influence, want to smoke weed or act obnoxious or compromise the safety of others, find another meetup event. Unfortunately this has occurred in the past, so its worth saying, such conduct has no place in this hiking meetup.
• Be thoughtful of others: if everyone were to bail at the last minute, it would be a very spooky and lonely hike; "No Shows" will be haunted!
• This will be a No Pets, No Kids, No +1's hike; everyone hiking must be an adult, a member of this meetup and agree to the liability waiver question.
FOLLOWING THE HIKE -
