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.

This month's BHM hike will be at Frontenac State Park. Make sure you allow for enough travel time. It takes between one and half to two hours from the Twin Cities to get there. A state park parking sticker is also needed to get in the park. We will meet at the Point-No-Point picnic area parking lot, which is located at the very end of the park road. The hike starts at 1:00 pm. Check the BHM website (bfhikersmn.org) for more information.

Our next hike will be held on Saturday, July 13 at Lebanon Hills Regional Park in the south metro city of Eagan. This year we will once again be visiting the wooded northern section of this expansive park.

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.

Note that there are no parking or entrance fees involved. Although the area we will be hiking through is often relatively bug-free, the mosquito situation can sometimes be hard to predict, so you might want to bring some insect repellant if that is a concern for you. Also, while we will be hiking on surfaces that are quite barefoot-friendly, feel free to bring along some backup footwear if you’d like.
