Every Saturday (unless otherwise indicated). 9:00am start time. Trailheads noted below, along with any specific trail notes.
General Things To Keep In Mind
Please dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear, and bring whatever mobility aides you require/prefer. A bottle of water is highly recommended! You walk at your own risk, set your own pace, and choose your finish time. The group usually walks for 1 hour. You do not need to RSVP, but Lisa recommends contacting her ahead of time so we don’t leave without you! Dogs are permitted on leash unless otherwise stated.
Whitemud Park to Keillor Road
Meet in the “first” parking lot. Click here for directions. There is one long hill, otherwise this trail is considered technically easy. Our turnaround point in the loop is Edmonton’s “End of the World” lookout point.
Fort Edmonton Footbridge
Meet in the main For Edmonton Park parking lot, closest to the park. Click here for directions. Technically simple trails, we follow the packed earth trail along the river to the Bridge, and the paved trail above the park back to the meeting point.
Fort Edmonton Park is open for the summer. Click here for more info, or to buy tickets.
Meet at 78 Street NW and Jasper Ave. Click here for the Google pin drop. There are a few steeper inclines on this hike (not pictured ;-), but we would still invite all skill levels of hikers to participate!
The site is 30km from Edmonton. Click here for directions. These are technically simple, packed earth trails that wander through old growth forest, meadows, and wetlands. It is a very special place. There are NO DOGS allowed.
The parking lot is small, and once filled, the site is at capacity. We recommend carpooling if you can!
Elk Island National Park
SPECIAL TIME: Meet in the Astotin Lake Area parking lot at 11:00am for the hike. After our hike, we are having cake at 12:30pm in celebration of Lisa’s 41st birthday. Click here for the Google pin drop. NOTE: There is a fee to enter the park.
