Beginner Hike III - Snelling Lake

This is #3 in our series of beginning hikes. For this one we'll hike around Lake Snelling, wind our way down along the Minnesota River (if the trail isn't under water) before coming back to the parking lot. The entire length should be a little over 4 miles. The path is gravel/dirt and depending on the weather could be muddy, so please make sure you have sturdy shoes, and maybe an extra pair to change into.


After hiking and for those interested, we'll stop at Champp's on West 7th for rehydration. 


A Minnesota State Park Pass is required and are available for the day ($5) or on a yearly basis ($25.)

    The clouds parted and the sunshine warmed the hearts of a happy group of hikers! And we were expecting overcast skies and a cool wind.... Do we have the right connections, or what..?!? Great hike!

    I have to change the date of this hike as there is something else that I would like to do on May 8th. I'm changing the date to Tuesday, May 13th. The new event will be for women only and is sponsored by Midwest Mountaineering.

      I somehow missed that this event is women only. Is that still the case? Please advise, my husband was going to come with me.

      Heidi- The May 8th event was for women only, put on by Midwest Mountaineering. Sue is pretty good about letting the boys join in on her events. Sue-- Thanks for organizing these hikes! Regrettably, I have not fully recovered from my latest injuries, so I'm going to miss this one. But I look forward to the next one...
