Itinerary:
Please read all details in red below and and event detail. We will need to be distanced while in single file and step off the trail or pathway briefly to let others pass safely.

Time for some more fast paced hike exercise to get in shape, and no better place than the river valley nature trails and some of the challenging single track trails it provides. So come on out and get fit.

We will meet in just off the parking lot of Goldstick Park (Just off Baseline Road next to Imperial Oil) at 6:25 PM and leave at 6:30 PM for the hike. Come well hydrated and keep your dinner light.
We could encounter slippery single track trail conditions, dress accordingly with trail shoes. We will start our hike by decending to the hillside single track trails, and loop around the park on a maze of trails. Then we will proceed on to Goldbar Area via the connecting trails and then more single track trails in Capilano Park. The way back via Goldstick trails are lit up by the Edmonton Nordic Ski Club trail lights, but we advise that you bring your own headlamps, or flashlight for the dark sections.

Experienced intermediate hikers are all welcome, but please be advised that this hike has a very brisk pace (6 km/h) with challenging single track narrow trails *and significant elevation. A real challenge!! If you are signing up to the advanced hike, we expect you to keep up to the fast pace so you don't fall too far behind and lose the group.


Look for Mark wearing (or holding) a blue EOC ball cap, or look up his profile picture on the volunteer page.

**There are important ways to protect yourself and others from Coronavirus, the most essential being to sanitize your hands frequently. We request that you **bring your own hand sanitizer** with you on the event. For all who choose to enjoy an EOC activity we require participants to follow all Federal and Provincial rules in regards to Covid- 19, and the 2 meters/ 6 feet of social distancing from all club members and the public while on the trails and in public spaces. ** Our activities are outdoors in uncrowded spaces where cross-contamination is considered lower risk, but strict precautions still need to be followed. click for more information and to learn more.

Additional requirements:

1. Create social space.
Avoid greeting each other where there is the potential for skin-to- skin contact, such as hugs or handshakes or high- fives. . When in doubt, share a friendly wave and 'hello'. Blow your nose, cough, sneeze, or clear your airway at least 2 metres away from others. Don't use clothing to wipe. Wear a mask in public places to help limit the risk of spread to others if you will be within 2 metres of people other than members of your own household.
  • **The government has indicated that masks may help. Therefore, we are leaving it to the discretion of participants to choose whether you'd like to wear masks. Be aware that this is not a requirement so you must be comfortable with others potentially not wearing masks (as long as social distancing is maintained).

    2. Are you feeling unwell?
    If you have a cough or flu-like symptoms, you must stay home, and should consider getting yourself tested by calling 8-1-1. Also the Alberta government states if you have symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat or runny nose, you MUST self-isolate for 10 days after the onset of symptoms and until your symptoms have resolved (whichever is longer). *If you are in mandatory self-isolation you can not legally go outside for a walk through your neighbourhood or park.

    3. Your EOC event hosts are volunteers.
    Participants are responsible for assessing the current road conditions, current weather conditions, their current physical condition, current trail conditions, and are responsible for their own safety and well-being.

    4. Further important considerations:

  • The province has encouraged outdoor activities with physical distancing. Studies have shown the benefits of outdoor activity for staying healthy. Therefore, we are offering outdoor organized activities to support your best health and well-being.
  • **Please respect each otherís space with the required social distancing of all people in public spaces.
