Did you resolve to exercise more in 2019? Join ​St. Croix River Association Executive Director Deb Ryun​ ​in kicking-off the New Year with a walk outdoors. Snow or no snow, we will hike the Englewood trail, a beautiful property that has been permanently protected along the St. Croix River near Osceola, WI.

Bring your camera as the hike will take you through woods and prairie to the bluffs overlooking the river.

The hike will be led by Deb and folks from the ​Standing Cedars Community Land Conservancy, who manage this property and are co-hosting the hike. The trail is about 3.5 miles in length, a few hills, and is suitable for all ages.

Meet at Standing Cedars, the Englewood parking lot. Wear layers appropriate for the weather, hiking or winter boots, snow shoes if needed, and any other items to keep you comfortable. If you received new trekking poles or binoculars for Christmas, bring them along and try them out.

Meet at the Engelwood main parking lot at Standing Cedars,​ ​215 280th Street, Osceola, WI.​ ​Registration is free and can be found here. Registration is not required but it will be helpful for planning purposes.
