It is Winter (or close to it) and time for some exercise, no better place than the river valley nature trails and some of the challenging stairs it provides. So come on out and get fit for the snow shoe season.

We will meet in the parking lot of the Fox Drive Stairs by the Alfred H. Savage Centre (the site has washrooms) at 7:00 PM and leave at 7:05 PM for the hike. Click here for the site amenities. Come well hydrated and keep your dinner light.
We could encounter slippery conditions, dress accordingly. We will start our hike by climbing the staircase and loop around on the path back to the base of the stairs (we may just hike up the hill first and come down the stairs due to ice conditions). Then we will proceed on through to Snow Valley via the Whitemud Nature Reserve trails. We will then follow the route back to our cars.

Novice and intermediate walkers are all welcome, but please be advised that this walk has a brisk pace. Join some of us at the Provincial Pub after with possible Karaoke :)
