Hike along the Mississippi River

  • Feb 15, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Keep my number with you that day, just in case... [masked] Call or text me if your plans change at the last minute and you can't make it. I can only check the RSVPs up until 12 noon, so it would be nice to know we don't need to wait for you.

Meeting location has been changed to the Longfellow Grill. We'll meet inside the restaurant to stay out of the cold wind until everyone arrives. Come early and enjoy lunch before the walk, and/or stay afterward for Happy Hour.

This trail is a relatively rugged dirt trail for much of its length, with grades. 2.5 miles in length one way; the 5 mile roundtrip Winchell Trail is a hiking-only trail on the west bank between Franklin Avenue and 44th Street. Unpaved trails break away from the main trail along the bluffs and cut into the woods, permitting additional exploration of the Mississippi Gorge. One section takes the hiker down to the river while another crosses an oak savanna restoration. Some sections are rugged and may be muddy after storms. There are also a number of stairs along the route.

In winter, we will most likely stick to the sidewalks along the parkway to avoid icy sections of the trail.

    Hello everyone,

    I was at the Grill at noon, but no one was there, so after 15 min of waiting I left and went for a walk by myself. Hopefully I can meet up with some of you again on another walk. Just didn't want you to think I was a no show...
