Itinerary:

Come join me for a day trip to Red Deer to explore the Waskasoo Park walking trails.

We will park at the Visitorís Centre off of Highway #2 (see the red #1 on the map link above) and north of 32nd Street. We will head north through the trees at Heritage Ranch then cross the Red Deer River and head east along the north side of the river past Great Chief Park and Bower Ponds then weíll cross over the river at 67th Street Bridge. We will head back west through Kerry Wood Nature Centre (see the red #15 on the map link above) and have a lunch and/or coffee stop at Dose Coffee Riverfront location. We will then continue west back to the Visitorís Center.

**The hike will be about 3-3.5 hours (13-14km at a moderate pace) on paved terrain (the lunch and/or coffee stop will be around the 2-2.5 hour mark).

We will be carpooling from Edmonton. **We will meet up at the Southgate LRT station parking lot on the south side of the LRT building at 9:00AM and depart by 9:10AM.** The LRT parking lot is east of 111th Street between Whitemud Drive and 51st Avenue.

(Please note that if itís snowing, weíll stay in town and go hiking at Whitemud Ravine.)

Carpool Cost: The event coordinator(s) will help you to arrange a centralized carpool if you require it, but it's not guaranteed. Please DO NOT pay your driver en route. Passengers will pay the coordinator, and he/she will distribute the money to the carpool drivers. SO PLEASE BRING CASH!!! Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $69.00 (calculated at total Km * $0.23, effective Friday, July 20, 2018). This is based on $0.09/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divided by 9. This cost will be multiplied by the number of carpooled cars, and divided by the number of carpool participants.
