Itinerary:

Come and explore the scenic trails at Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area, west of Edmonton. There are four interlinking trails - Indian Ridge, Natures Way, Woodland Lookout, and Cranberry Corner Trails for a total of ~11km. The terrain is mainly gently rolling hills, but there are a few steeper sections too, for a bit of a workout. There are picnic tables and outhouses along the trails. Click on the links for more info: Parkland County Webpage and Chickakoo Trail Map.

*PLEASE NOTE: I hope to do all of the 11km of trails but this depends on the group preferences, weather, etc. I figure we will take 3 hours to complete this trip including a 15-20 minute lunch/snack break. This will be a MODERATE paced hike at 4-4.5km/hour.

We will begin the hike at 10:30AM at the Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area trailhead. To recognize me, I will be wearing a royal blue EOC cap and standing next to a silver Toyota Rav4 in the UPPER parking lot.
