March 20, 2014 Holland Lake/Lebanon Hills Hike

Join us for a hike in Eagan's Lebanon Hills Regional Park, starting from the Holland Lake entrance. Lebanon Hills Regional Park consists of over 2,000 acres of naturally preserved park with moraines, eskers and numerous pothole lakes. Situated on a large expanse of naturally preserved parkland, 40% of its land area is grassland with the remainder being wetland and forest dominated by red oak with some American elm. Surface water resources consist of widely dispersed small lakes and ponds. Holland Lake, at 33 acres and 55 feet deep, contains trout, bluegill, sunfish, bullhead, and northern pike, and has the best water quality of any lake in Eagan.

Directions Take I-35E to Eagan and exit on Cliff Road. Proceed east on Cliff Road to Lexington Ave. Turn right at stoplight and enter park. Proceed to parking lot. We will be hiking the Northern Voyager trail.
