7:00 PM sharp. From the first parking lot
(before the Whitemud Drive bridge) we will
proceed South towards 29 Ave (Ogilvie Ridge). The
route will be a circuit that follows along the main
gravel path, for a total round trip of about 6 km.
**Please be aware the trail could
be wet, icy, or muddy in some sections.|
Here's a write up from one of the last events "We hiked South up the Whitemud Nature Reserve forest and creek bridges to Olgilvie Ridge. We then continued East along the cleared trails to Westbrooke Estates. We found the connector to the Whitemud Nature Reserve (below the mansion that looks like a castle), and hiked back through the forest trails to the upper parking lot on Rainbow Valley Road. The full orange moon finally made its appearance late in the evening, and from our lookout points on the scenic nature trail, we could see most star constellations".
Look for Mark with a blue EOC baseball cap hanging from the antenna of his car.
