Enjoy the trails of this hidden gem in St. Louis Park. We’ll hike through pine and oak forested hills, then descend to skirt a lake and walk through wetlands along a boardwalk. Many animals make their home in this park: deer, turkey, swan, mink, snapping turtles and many smaller birds.
Please note start time is at 6:30 p.m. for this hike! We’ll hike for about an hour or so, rain or shine. If it’s damp, you may want to bring some bug protection.
