Please join us on December 4 at 9:30 for an invigorating hike from The Monument located at the intersection of Mississippi RIver Blvd and Summit Avenue in St. Paul to Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis and back. There are about 9 parking spaces in the parking lot right by the Monument and street parking along Summit. This hike is on paved trails, approximately 5.5 miles in length, and will be at a pace suitable to the weather.
When putting the "Monument at Summit and Mississippi River Blvd" into your GPS, do NOT get this location confused with Summit Monument Park near the State Capital. This hike is located along the Mississippi River, will cross the Ford Bridge to Minnehaha Falls, and return the same route.
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.
