Where:
15600 50th Street South Afton, MN

The forecast is 70 and sunny. A good time to hike the prairie loop out in the open! We will meet at the 50th Street entrance at the north end of the park. This is street parking only and does not require a state park pass. The route I have mapped is about 3.2 miles in length and will take 1 hour to complete. The prairie is mostly flat but there are a few scattered hills.  Please note, we will be walking at a fairly fast pace around 18 minutes a mile.  

Please be on time for the hike. The sun sets at 6:45 pm. We will be departing at 5:45 sharp. Late comers can catch up to us on the trail. We will be traveling in a counter-clockwise direction.

We will be hiking on the dashed trail in this map (the far section to the east we will not hike)
