Come join the Barefoot Hikers of Minnesota for a nature hike. See their site for more details:  bfhikersmn.org

Meet at the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center building, 860 Cliff Road
No parking or entrance fees
Leashed pets are welcome; please put pet waste in the garbage
See the “Hikes” page of our website for park information and driving directions

We’ll set off from the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center building at 1:00 PM and take an “out and back” hike to the Holland Lake trailhead.  The natural-surface trails in this area of the park are great for bare feet, with lots of packed earth, some sections of mowed grass, and a couple of small but wonderful stretches of fine sand near the lake.  And there’s plenty of tree cover to shade us from the summer sun.  In the past, it has taken us right around 2 hours to cover this 3.8 mile route.

There is a new show on National Geographic channel called The Legend of Mick Dodge. He is a barefooter and bushcrafter.

I know that shoes are generally unsafe but this is ridiculous.

Sturdy boots are usually considered key to a long, safe hiking trip. But some hikers strip off all the foot protection to fully appreciate the ground they walk on.

Tomorrow is One Day without Shoes organized by TOMS. Anyone aware of local events that will recognize this cause?

A bit of snow in MN today. Don't forget to acclimatize your feet for the season.
