We will meet in the zoo parking lot just before entering Sir Wilfred Laurier Park, west of Buena Vista Road across from the small parking lot at 6:50 PM for check-in and leave at 6:55 PM for the hike. See map below

We will be hiking at a brisk pace from the parking lot to the Buena Vista Off Leash area, going across the footbridge connecting to Hawrelak Park. We will then follow the river South West to parallel Fox Drive to the Quesnel Bridge . After we cross the river we will circle back to the Zoo along the original side of the river through Sir Wilfred Laurier Park. Some sections of the trail are steep and they can be slippery. Good footwear is essential, and ice cleats are often required.
