Tamarack Nature Center Hike

We'll start hiking right at 2:00 pm. Please remember to bring sunscreen, water and maybe a snack. This hike will last about 1.5 hours and will involve the outer loop of the trails.

 

For those interested we'll head over to a member's house, conveniently located nearby, for a cook-out and pot luck. Meats, plates and utensils will be provided, all you have to do is bring a salad or dessert to share.

 

 

This is a beautiful park named for its abundant "tamarack" trees, which look like pines but are really softer, younger forest growth that grow near marshes and wetlands. We'll hike about 2 miles of looped trails, give or take. I've only visited the park a couple of times, so bring your sense of adventure while we navigate the maps. They go in a circle so you can't get lost. It's in White Bear Township, easy to find. Here's a map:

    If we hike 1.5 hours...I would come but to hike 2 miles I won't be there.

    September 21, 2013

  • Ann M.

    I am a bit confused...2 miles of hiking is about 1/2 hour of time. So are we hiking 2 miles or 1.5 hours?

    Its going to be a beautiful day tomorrow. Because we have a large group we are going to split up. One group will go one way and the other another and we'll meet in the middle. I lead a group that will go to the left, as I've never started out in that direction at this park. It'll be a chance to see the park from a different angle.

    I will join the cookout and I will bring a fruit dessert

    September 16, 2013

  • Sue

    Because there is a large number signed up for hiking I'm going to start another Meetup for the cookout. That will allow Alice the chance to prepare and have a better idea of how many are actually coming to her house afterwards. If you indicated in the conversation that you were going to the cookout, I'll automatically RSVP yes for you. However, if you change your mind please update your RSVP so Alice knows. Thanks!

  • Bev

    I'll bring a dessert of cupcakes or bars

    August 31, 2013

  • Della

    I can bring some coleslaw or a salad. I don't eat meat if that impacts what she will need to get for grilling.

    August 30, 2013

  • Sue

    Alice is going to need to know how many people are going over to her place after the hike. So please join this conversation by letting me know and also letting me know what you plan on bringing. Alice needs to prepare and plan the grilled food accordingly so there is enough for all attending.

    It is a very easy place to hike and find your way around. Maps are barely necessary.
