JJ Collett Provincial Natural Area Foundation located in rural central Alberta near the hamlet of Morningside, consists of 635 acres of Aspen Parkland underlain by ancient sand dunes. Over 18 km of maintained trails wind through a mosaic of shrub lands, aspen groves, stands of white spruce on moist shady hillsides, wetlands and grassy meadows typical of the area. The JJ Collett Natural Area Foundation was established in 1985, as a provincial volunteer steward group to help preserve, maintain and provide environmental education for this ecologically diverse habitat.

We will hike and explore the scenery for about two to two and half hours at intermediate pace for about 11 kms (this is not a beginner slow hike).

This event will be at an average intermediate pace compared to our brisk hikes (approximately 5 km/hr compared to 5.5 km/hr).

***We are open to having dogs on the hike, however they must be leashed***
