  • *NEW* Centennial Hiking Club: Lake Elmo Park Reserve

    Join us as we explore Lake Elmo Park Reserve. This 3-5 square mile area has 80 percent of its acreage set aside for preservation and protection. The landscape is varied with forests and prairies. We will be taking the 3.8 mile Eagle Point Lake Trail which is one of the reserve’s highlights. Many find themselves away from the business of other areas in the reserve on this trail. You may catch an eagle roosting on a dead limb and there are plenty of songbirds along the marshy edges of the lake. The prairies along the path have been semi-restored with varieties of wildflowers and grasses. Instructions for meeting location near the hike’s starting point will be emailed prior to hike. For those interested afterwards we will gather at Angelina’s Kitchen for refreshments on your own.
