The Happy Hikers Grand Finale hike on Wed., Oct. 4, 2017, will be to the Lutsen Mountain Gondola Ride & Lake Superior Trail over the Mystery Mountain. We'll ride in a new Gondola car to the Summit Chalet of Moose Mountain and hike along the Ridgeline Trail which connects to the Lake Superior Hiking Trail. This trail goes down in the valley and then rises to cross Mystery Mountain and drops again to cross the Poplar River Falls bridge. We end up back at our cars near the Gondola Tram. Difficulty is high, due to a very steep hill getting down from Moose Mountain and the length of 4 to 5 miles. Hiking shoes & poles are strongly recommended.

Meet at the YMCA by the tennis courts at 9:30 on Wed., Oct. 4, to carpool to the Lutsen Mountain Tram entrance.

Tram opens at 10 am. Cost is $17 for seniors, $20 adults. Two-way tickets only, even though we are going to use only half of it.


Dogs are welcome on a leash and must be able to ride the Gondola to the top.
