We will meet at 6:20 PM to check in, and leave at 6:30 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 9 km.

Here's a quote from one of our last hikes on the same route: "We hiked South up the Whitemud Nature Reserve forest and creek bridges to Olgilvie Ridge. We then continued East along the cleared trails to Westridge Estates where we saw some unique architecture. 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. It turned out to be a great weather evening of urban hiking. It was Great to see everyone there!"

**Please be aware the trail could be wet or muddy in some sections.

Look for Mark wearing a yellow EOC baseball cap.
