Trailing Practice: Sat, June 15

Welcome to Trailing Practice 

To support our members' growing interest in trailing, we host monthly practice sessions at a variety of locations in and around the Metro Area. This month we will meet at Coldwater Spring, located along the bike trail between Minnehaha Park and Ft, Snelling. With Pike Island and much of the Ft Snelling bottom lands still flooded, many deer are moving to higher ground. Let's see if we can pick up their trails up along bluffs.

Saturday, June 15
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Because there is minimal parking near the Coldwater Spring entrance, we will meet in the parking lot for the Historic Ft. Snelling Visitor Center: 

Historic Fort Snelling Visitor Center
200 Tower Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55417

Let's gather toward the west end of the parking lot (away from the historic fort), near the picnic overlook.

This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail. Please bring appropriate gear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day. Please also take precautions for ticks, as we expect to follow deer trails through grass and brush--prime tick habitat.

We will meet at 9:00 at the historic fort parking lot. We will head out on the trail shortly after 9:00 and return to the parking lot by noon. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700. Please note that once we are trailing, I will have my phone on vibrate and could easily miss an incoming call.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
