- Max Trip Size: 15 people
Join us for a 4.25 mile hike along the Mississippi River, between the River Roads and the river on #OptOutside Friday. This is a beautiful time for this hike, as we can see the geology of the bluffs from the bottom with the leaves down. The trail has steep spots and can be wet and slippery, so cleats and poles may be a good idea. We’ll be moving at a pace that will allow us to take in the scenery and navigate the trail. The hike may take about 2 hours.
Park in the neighborhood near the corner of West River Road and E 32nd St. Meet at this intersection at 9:00. We’ll enter the trail off West River Road and hike north under the Marshall Street bridge to the Franklin Avenue bridge. After crossing this bridge we’ll go back down to the river and hike south back to Marshall St. When we get to the Longfellow Grill some may stop for refreshments while others may continue the three blocks back to their cars. Leashes dogs welcome (but not in Longfellow Grill).
All of the above is plan A. Plan B is the same trip but staying up on the River Roads, sharing the trail with many more people.
Please contact me by text or email if you intend to join us, so that I can notify you if there are any changes.
