Fall Fun Walks with the NSTT
The NorthStar Trail Travelers (NSTT) are heading up north in September, and you’re invited.
Saturday, September 17: Jay Cooke State Park
Trails will include two options, totaling 12km. Two 6km loops with one loop going along Forbay Lake to see how the area has changed since the 2012 flood. This loop is fairly flat with a few small rolling hills. The trails are a mixture of paved trails, gravel roadway and grass trails. This trail is suitable for strollers. The other 6km loop follows the hiking club trail. This loop is rocky with exposed tree roots with lots of hills. This trail is mostly hard packed dirt and grass. Registration by the River Inn. Brats/hot dogs and other food will be available for a donation throughout the day. Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome. Register between 9 a.m, and 2 p.m. and finish by 4 p.m. Register between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. and finish by 3 p.m. Fees from $2-$8 for each event.
