Itinerary:

**NOTE: Please read all details in red below re: all COVID-19 group precautions before signing up!

**We will be enforcing social distancing throughout the hike. Anyone who is not acting in accordance with COVID safety requirements will be warned once. If non- compliance continues, they will be asked to leave the activity!

**Please note:
- I am only going to have 8 people max including myself on this event.
- This will be a moderately paced walk of ~4.5km/hr (slower on the hills).
- This event will be weather dependent, please check the EOC calendar and your email for any updates.

Please note that I have not hiked on these trails before so this will be an exploratory trip.

About this walk: ~15-16km, ~4 hours including a 15-20 minute lunch / snack break

We'll start from Prospectors' Point Day Use Area which is located on the north bank of the N Sask River, NOT the Devon side.

We will hike up the short but steep hill (switchbacks) overlooking Voyageur Park and head along the Devonian Way (Range Road 262) to Tucker's Field. From there, we will check out the 4km of trails at Tucker's Field then head back to the parking lot.
