Meander along Rice Creek | the pause before winter
Numerous foot bridges over the curving Rice Creek, migrating birds resting in the natural forested buffer, and remaining fall leaves will make for an enjoyable walk. We'll walk 2-1/2 to 3 miles, depending upon who shows up and how much of a walk they want. There is one big, steep hill, and several smaller ones, so this walk is for people who can tolerate that. DRIVING NOTE: The frontage road from the south is closed because of construction, so you'll need to go to 73rd and drive south on the frontage road from there to 71st. (The road-closed sign at 71st and the frontage road is for the southbound frontage road beyond there, not 71st itself.) Please read the location and extended location info carefully! We will meet at the far eastern parking lot. Keep going on 71st all the way to the last parking lot where you cannot go any farther! There's the larger of the two pavilions, and a playground right there. Bundle up! It could be even a little chillier in the shade and down by the water. Kickoff by 10:40 am or when all who have RSVP'd are there. Please keep your RSVP up to date, and be prompt if you're attending, so we're not standing around in the chilly air waiting. Thanks!

What we're about

MN Walking Meetup--friendly group walks at a moderate pace. Sorry, no kiddos or pets! Just adult people. Meet potential walking buddies & explore new parks and natural areas in the Twin Cities metro area.

If these crowdsourced group walks enhance your life, consider using the "Chip In" button now and then as a "thank you." The organizer person is charged a monthly online hosting fee by, which otherwise comes from her own pocket. Even $5 helps keep the group going. Thx.

NOTE: To avoid favoritism, we do not do ANY charity walks. Also, this is a not a business networking group. Thanks for understanding!
