Preparation for summer hiking - 11th walk

Parking: At the intersection of 14A St & 50 Ave,SW (River Park), follow 50th Ave past the Emily Follensbee Centre and down the hill to the last parking lot at the bottom of the hill.

 

There are great hiking trails below the Glenmore Dam to the south. All-in-all, this is a great route for training and for views of the downtown core, the mountains and the Elbow River


Soon we will be going hiking into the mountains, however if you are like us, you managed to get a wee bit out of shape over the winter months.

 

So, let's get out and work on our stamina by starting off slowly and building up.

 

As the series goes on we will incorporate hills, stairs and the opportunity to carry a loaded back pack.  (Feel free to bring your back pack to all walks if you like)

 

Each walk will be approximately 1 hour long and will take place in the evenings.

    A hiking or ski pole would help going uphill. I never would have been able to make it up the hill if it hadn't been for my dog pulling me.

    It was a marvellous walk, and my only complaint was that I needed a chairlift for the hill. Is that something that is in the budget.

      No, but if it was I would be in line too - that was a good hill to get our hearts pumping!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
