We are in for a treat on June 3! Our hike leader and host for this hike, Lynn Anderson, will lead us on trails at two parks near her Monticello home. We will meet at Lynn's home at 9:30 (park in Lynn's driveway) and carpool and caravan to the two parks. They are each only a 5 minute drive away. 

Here is some info about Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park.  And some about Montisissippi Regional Park. The total distance for these two trails is about 5 miles. Bring a bag lunch and we will gather in Lynn's yard along the Mississippi River for eating and socializing after the hike.

You will be given Lynn's address after you register for this June 3 hike. When registering, indicate in the Comments section if you want to carpool (drive or ride) to Monticello. Don't wait too long to sign up for this fun day in Monticello.
