This summer, join AARP in the Twin Cities for a Trail Trekkers Hike and snack along the way. Our fourth group hike of the season will begin with the Three Rivers Park District at the Coon Rapids Dam Visitor Center. This Wild Edibles hike will lead Trail Trekkers along the Mississippi River, through fields, floodplains, and along the shoreline. This naturalist guided group hike will teach Trail Trekkers about how to identify plants and berries safe for consumption and will highlight handy characteristics to look out for. Post-hike, Trail Trekkers will hydrate and enjoy frozen fruit bars along with an interactive visit from the roving Three Rivers Park Outreach Van before loading up with AARP Minnesota Active Living Gear including a water bottle and safety light wristband, to take back on the road, the trails, you name it. 9:30 a.m. Event Registration 10:00 a.m. Trail Trekking Begins! (2 mile guided hike) Free and accessible on-site parking. Restrooms and water fountains available inside the Visitor Center.
