Como Lake hike

Location
Como Lakeside Pavilion
1360 Lexington Parkway N., St. Paul
 

Please join us at 9:30 on June 17, 2024 for a walk around Lake Como in St. Paul before attending the UMRA Summer Social and Picnic starting at 11 at the Como Pavilion. A perfect opportunity to get in a walk before we gather to celebrate summer.

We will meet on the south end of the Pavilion at 9:30 and walk the paved trail around Lake Como two times (for a total of 4 miles), leaving us plenty of time to freshen up before the 11:00 event. I hope you will join us for both the hike and the picnic.

Please sign up for this hike (required). Your completed form will be used to be sure everyone has arrived. Registrations will be accepted up to 24 hours before the hike.

I hope you will join us for both the hike and the picnic.  Read more and register for the Social and Picnic.

Hope to see you on June 17!
