Take a Valentine Nature Lover’s Hike this Sunday
Take Our Survey on Why You Love Nature at Innsbrook!
Show your love of Nature – and work off that big Valentine date meal – by joining us for a small group winter hike this Sunday, February 11, at 1 pm. We plan to meet at the Lake Konstanz trailhead and head off to the north for a counterclockwise trip around the 1.8 mile trail. This hike takes about an hour with a good pace as it passes through a pine forest that is magical in the winter snow, then crosses the Lake Konstanz Dam overlooking Lake Alpine where bald eagles are often sighted, and finally through relatively undisturbed forests that much wildlife calls home.
The Lake Konstanz trailhead is located near the Stracks Church Road exit with ample parking around the mailboxes. Learn more about this trail, along with a map, on the Innsbrook Resort’s website at Konstanz Trail.
Valentine Nature Lovers Hike 2015
We chose this particular trail because the winter weather forecasted this week may make trails located off icy gravel roads more difficult to access. If Konstanz Trail becomes too snowy or icy in spots, there are several locations to bail out and walk back to your vehicles on a paved road. Remember that there’s no shame in enjoying just the first half of the hike on relatively flat ground, then returning to your warm car!
Please dress appropriately for winter weather and bring your own water as it is easy to become dehydrated in the dry cold winter as is in the hot summer. A hiking pole or sturdy stick is recommended. We’ll bring the Valentine sweet treats and hot chocolate!
Your four-legged hiking companions are welcomed if they are socialized with groups, including other dogs, and of course are kept on a leash.

Just a reminder that this is not an Innsbrook Resort sponsored event nor are we a formal club, so the decision to participate is at your level of comfort. In case of severe winter weather the group hike may be cancelled so check back here for the latest news.
