Let's get out and enjoy the fresh snow!
We will snowshoe on Pike Island which normally takes approximately an hour to hike the 3.1 miles. Since we will be on snowshoes it will take a bit longer. If they track ski trails by Saturday, we will snowshoe along side the trail and other areas of the island.
There are no rentals at Fort Snelling State Park so you will have to provide your own. REI rents them for the day and I also have about 3 extra pairs for those that would like to try them out. First 3 people to let me know can use them.
Afterward we can get a bite to eat and a drink somewhere near by for those interested.
The Visitor Center is located at the end of main road that runs through the park. It is located under the Mendota/Hwy 55 bridge. I have a dark blue Ford Explorer. Also a reminder that a State Park sticker is required for your vehicle. either carpool with someone that already has one or you can get a day pass for $5.00. I would suggest getting the $25 annual pass if you plan on attending other events at State Parks. It's good for all the State Parks in MN.
Hope to see some of you out there.
