|This will be a series of hikes designed to get us
in shape and geared up for upcoming
backpacking, or hiking trips with the EOC. Each
week or two we will
hike in the river valley area on trails that will
help condition us, leading up to
enjoyable weekends potentially exploring the
Rockies and our own Alberta "back yard". |
This hike is rated
as a D4 difficulty because some of the trails have
a steep elevation incline sections and may have
tree roots, muddy sections, loose surface, narrow
hiking poles or a walking stick is advised.
We will hike one of the best kept secret in the
Edmonton river valley coined by locals as "Ewok
Village". This is a network of trails along the
South East forested slope just below McNally High
School. We will then hike under the Dawson bridge
and travel along the even gravel trails around
Riverside Golf Course. We plan to keep a steady
hiking pace through forested trails, up steep
inclines, down challenging slopes and hidden
gullies. The route will be finished by a hike up
the hill on the paved multi-use trail back to
HERE for more info and tips on beginner
backpacking and hiking if you are interested. The
EOC also has some great links and outdoor

We will meet at McNally High School parking lot at
6:45 PM for introductions and questions, and then
we will depart at 7:00 PM sharp. Please ensure you
have good foot wear and are well hydrated.
Everyone is welcome even if you are not interested
in backpacking. Look for the guy with the yellow
