The Mill Woods Mill Creek Ravine Park is located near the Jackie Parker Recreational Area in Mill Woods. I walk all the River Valley parks and this section of the Mill Creek Ravine in Mill Woods one is my favourites; even though itís not connected with the more well know sections near the River Valley. These dirt trails are quite isolated and it is hard to believe that you are in the middle of a residential area in the City. There are nice wooden bridges crisscrossing the creek and you could see a fair amount of wildlife there too. I often see squirrels and chipmunks, lots of birds; the occasional deer and owl too".

We will be hiking at a brisk pace East along Mill Creek on dirt and gravel trails for approximately 1 hour (each direction) and returning West on the same trails. Some sections of the trail are steep and can be slippery when wet. Footwear with a good tread is essential. We will meet for check in and introductions at 6:50 PM, and leave at 7:00 PM sharp. Dogs are permitted, but must be on leash when out of off- leash area.
