Itinerary:
*Last minute event posting this week. Mainly sheltered hike in a forest and gullies.
We will hike the nature trails at Kingswood Park and Riverlot 56. Most of the trails are fairly flat, and there are a couple of small hills in the Riverlot 56 trail system. We will do approximately 10 km of trails.

We will meet at the Kingswood Shelter at the Kingswood Day Area. The building is heated with picnic tables and washrooms. Very civilized.

Departing from the Kingswood Shelter, we will see Riverlot 56 across Poundermaker Road. We'll have walk across Poundmaker Road and get into the main Riverlot 56 trails. We will explore and enjoy the main Riverlot 56 trails, and then return across Poundmaker Road. Continuing along the Kingswood trail, after just a short distance (down a hill), we will explore more Riverlot 56 trails on the Kingswood Park side of the road. There is a pleasant wooded loop trail through here.

Please take note of the required items and come prepared for snow and the cold.

Dogs are welcome on this hike, however they must be leashed because there is no off-leash area where we are going. If you are bringing your dog(s) please note this when you sign up for the event.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Access Kingswood Park (part of Red Willow Park) off of Sir Winston Churchill Dr. in St. Albert, in between Sturgeon Rd. and Poundmaker Rd. Or, you can use a different access to the park (some info says to get there off of Sturgeon Rd). Use any entrance you like and meet in the shelter. Look for the coordinator with the Blue EOC ball cap. There is also a playground called Kingswood Park that your GPS may send you to if you just put "Kingswood Park" into it. It's best to follow these directions instead.
