Join Rovers for an 8.7-mile loop hike in Elm Creek Park Reserve, north of the Twin Cities, near Dayton, Minnesota. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 2 h 52 min to complete. This trail is great for hiking and walking, and it’s unlikely you’ll encounter many other people while exploring. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash. Bring your traction devices/cleats as there will likely be occasions we will need to wear them and/or hiking poles. Recommend dressing in layers, and bringing water and snacks. We will leave from the single-track parking lot at 10 am to begin the hike. The address of the parking lot is 1827 W Hayden Lake Rd, Maple Grove, MN 55369 My cell is 210.867.9858.
Afterward, at about 1 pm, we will head over to Omni Brewery and Taproom. All Rovers are welcome, hikers or not. The taproom serves wine/beer and has food – pizza and the Fused Craft Brewed Eats food truck on their schedule. Well-behaved dogs are allowed inside the taproom or their patio.
