Dinner on the Bluff: “Towards a Minnesota Driftless Hiking Trail”Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center 28097 Goodview Drive, Lanesboro, MN
Marty Walsh, the “instigator” behind the Minnesota Driftless Hiking Trail will speak on the effort to develop a 110+ mile backpacking-focused trail from Chatfield to the Mississippi River through Minnesota’s Bluff Country or Driftless Area. Walsh will cover the history of effort to build a trail in the region as well as why the group sees such a demand for more long-distance hiking in the area. He will also discuss the route they are looking to build the trail along, how landowners and community members can help the project, and what the trail could mean for the area.
