Camping, hiking, and biking! A group site is reserved at Nerstrand Big Woods State Park near Northfield for Friday through Sunday. Spend your time doing what you love, but one option will be to bike the Jesse James Bike Tour, which travels through the lakes region of Rice County and rolling rural hills, on Saturday (routes range from 10 to 100 miles). Explore Nerstrand Big Woods and Northfield. Check out the Jesse James Reenactment.
You bring food, snacks, beverages, plates/utensils, lawn chair, and camping gear. You may borrow equipment from the Rovers, but you will need to make arrangements with the cage coordinator to reserve and pick up. Rovers membership is required for this overnight trip. (Joining is easy and is just $25 per year.)
Beginners and families are welcome; 4 spaces will be reserved until August 16 for new members who have joined in the past year. We’ll arrange carpooling as the weekend gets closer. Well-behaved dogs are welcome. If you would like to help co-coordinate, let me know.
Estimated cost: $10. (Gas, food, state park vehicle pass extra). Deposit: $10. Max trip size: 20.
