In the late 1890s Governor Lind “loved the shaded hills and deep ravines about Itasca Lake” so much that he spent his own money to develop a horse trail. This route, cut from the wagon road at Mary Creek to the Source of the Mississippi River, made a circuit to the south end of the park. Join the naturalist on a hike along the original saddle trail to one of the mystery markers scattered throughout the park from 10:30 a.m. to noon Wednesday, September 16. Notes: The hike to the marker is approximately 3 miles round trip. Bring insect repellant, sunscreen, water and a hat. Space is limited for this program. You must register by Tuesday, September 15 at 5 p.m. For more information or to register, email Naturalist Sandra at email@example.com.
