About Bunchberry Meadows Conservation Area: Located west of Edmonton, Bunchberry Meadows is a 640-acre (260-hectare) conservation site made up of old-growth forests, open meadows and wetlands. The forest supports jack pine, which is habitat for northern flying squirrels, porcupines and long-tailed weasels. The water and willows shelter a variety of species as small as tiger salamander and as large as a moose. Owned in partnership with the Edmonton and Area Land Trust, Bunchberry Meadows is open to the public year-round for foot access.

**There could be icy sections on this paved trail so please bring your ice grips with.
