It may be part bush-whacking but that is part of the adventure. Be prepared for wilderness travel.

We'll meet at 6:20 PM at the parking lot on the South side of 23rd Ave just to the east of the Bridge over the Whitemud Creek. This is the dip(small valley) in the road between 119th Street and Rabbit Hill Road.

The hike should be between 2 and 2.5 hrs approximately.

You could encounter snow,slush,mud, slippery conditions, this time of year, etc. - dress accordingly.Please don't wear sneakers on this hike.Be sure to bring water to keep hydrated and energized during the hike. It's recommended to bring poles for the down hill climb.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:If you're coming from the west, take Whitemud to Terwillegar. From Terwillegar, turn left onto Rabbit Hill Road, then left on 23rd. You will go down a hill with a bridge at the bottom. The parking lot is at the end of the bridge on the right-hand side. If you're coming from the east, you might instead want to come down 119th street and turn right on 23rd. When you come down the hill towards the bridge, you will not be able to turn into the parking lot heading west - you have to go up the hill, find a place to turn around, then return down the hill to find the parking lot on the right.
