Let's meet for a hike and some geo-chat!
When: Saturday, May 22nd @ 1pm to 2pm (or as long as you linger!)
Where: Lewis & Clark State Park South Trail
Why: The North Dakota Park & Recreation Department (NDPRD) has issued a statewide “12 Months – 12 Hikes” challenge. To participate, just pick and hike one of the 20 qualifying trails. The trails are located in 12 participating state parks and you have a two-week period each month to complete a hike. You can complete your hikes all in one park or explore any of 12 locations across the state.
The North Dakota Geocaching Association (NDGCA) would like to help everyone complete the hiking challenge. To do this, we will be hosting an event in a different state park each month, so we can get together with other geocachers.
What: May's theme is "Mother's Hike" - bring your mom! - or anyone interested in geocaching, even if they haven't found a geocache! We will meet and chat a little before hiking the South Trail system, a hike that is about 2.5 to 3 miles long with stunning views of the lake and a surprise tunnel. I'll have a small snack and water following the hike, plus a couple giveaway items.
Reminders: A daily pass ($7) or annual ND state park pass ($35) is required to enter. Masks are encouraged if a distance of 6-feet cannot be maintained.
