Event description

Description

The Minnesota Chapter of Fat Girls Hiking is now OPEN! This hike will be led by our amazing FGH Minnesota ambassadors, Ani & Kathy! Check out their ambassador profiles on the website: fatgirlshiking.com/minnesota & feel free to email them with any questions: fghminnesota@gmail.com



Marsh, woodland and prairie all in a 2-mile hike! Join us as we explore the Wood Lake Nature Center's trails including a boardwalk across the marsh and a prairie overlook.

The hike: We'll be taking a 2-mile hike in a loop, with almost no elevation gain. This would be a nice hike for kids who can hike for 2 miles; pets are not allowed in this wildlife protection area. Most trails are crushed limestone and the site says "most trails are wheelchair accessible during the summer" (probably depends somewhat on rainfall.) More info at: woodlakenaturecenter.org


Fat Girls Hiking's Body Positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. We go at a pace that feels good for everyone. No one is too slow to hike with us! No one is left behind! We love to share our lived experiences with one another on the trail and hope to create a space where ALL feel welcome! We ask that anyone who joins our group events refrain from diet talk, body shaming or weight loss talk.

Getting there: Wood Lake Nature Center is off highway 35W, one exit south of highway 62. From 35W, take the exit for W 66th Street and head east. In 1/4 mile, turn right onto Lake Shore Dr S, the parking lot will be on your right. Meet by the interpretation center (building by the parking lot.) Free parking and trail access, bathrooms and water fountains on site.
