Write Up:
The best instalment of "Hills and Drills" so far this season. We hiked 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. The group kept a very quick hiking pace through many forested trails, up steep inclines, down challenging slopes and hidden gullies. We then hiked under the Dawson bridge and travelled along the even gravel trails around Riverside Golf Course. The route was finished by a long hike up the hill on the paved multi-use trail back to McNally.
