For those interested, we will be leading a hike/walk starting at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, March 19, from Big Willow park at - 11522 Minnetonka Blvd, Minnetonka Mills, MN 55305

Meet the group in the parking lot by the baseball fields and playground, not the City Public Works.  

The restrooms are not yet open for the season, so please try instead to use a gas station about a mile west before driving to the hike's starting parking lot.

This will be about a 4.0 mile total walk/hike, with a little of everything, starts on tar trail, then firm-pack trail, then even some well-trod grassland.

There are a couple of short steep hill climbs, and we also walk by the babbling brook that is Minnehaha Creek, and also along some railroad tracks, and over a couple foot bridges.

Pets are allowed on the Big Willow park trails. 

The frost is coming out of the ground, so it could be muddy in spots. 

We will be wearing hiking boots (not tennies) and walking/hiking at a casual/relaxed pace.  May want to bring binoculars and/or walking sticks.

Here is a route map:

Optional lunch is about 3 miles into the route, at Station Pizzeria in Minnetonka Mills, with a then 1 mile walk back to the parking lot afterwards.
