|This will be one of the hikes this year designed to get
in shape and geared up for upcoming
backpacking, or hiking trips with the EOC. Each
week or so we will
hike in the river valley area on trails that
help condition us. Hopefully these conditioning hikes lead up to
enjoyable weekends exploring the
Rockies and our own Alberta "back yard". |
This hike is rated as a D4 difficulty because some of the trails have a steep elevation incline sections and may have tree roots, muddy sections, loose surface, narrow trail. Bringing hiking poles or a walking stick is advised.
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.
We will hike one of 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. We will then hike under the Dawson bridge and travel along the even gravel trails around Riverside Golf Course to further challenging forest trails. We plan to keep a steady hiking pace through forested trails, up steep inclines, down challenging slopes and hidden gullies. The route will be finished by a hike up the hill on the paved multi-use trail back to McNally.

In the case of any recent rain and extremely muddy conditions, we will alter the route to easier gravel and multi-use trails.
We will meet at McNally High School parking lot
7:00 PM for introductions and questions, and
we will depart at 7:05 PM sharp. Please ensure
have good foot wear and are well hydrated.
