Tuesday Morning Winter Walk in Fish Creek Park - Shannon Terrace - Ridge Walk!

Welcome to the second Tuesday morning walk in 2014!  We have started from the west side of the park in Woodbine and future events will take us throughout the entire park covering a LOT of ground connecting each segment week after week!  You will over time get to see this park like never before especially if you have just recently joined us.

This second one will be the first walk doing the ridge overlooking Fish Creek Park.  We will access the trailhead from the first parking lot to the left at the bottom of the hill into the park.  I scouted it out last Tuesday on my way out.  The trail from this parking lot is packed down pretty good.  Icers/hiking poles would be a good idea to have with you on this walk. One hill to climb and two staircases plus a fence to climb over for the last viewpoint. Plan is to double back to the parking lot on this adventure.

Walk will be approx. 1 hr.

For those who wish to go for coffee afterwards, there is a Tim Hortons on Braeside and 24th St. S.W.


Dogs welcome if on leash and obedient so the members don't get muddy paws on their clothes! Just remember that some members may be afraid of them. Others are allergic to them and a loose dog can put them in the hospital if they come in contact with them.

    Was taking great shots til my camera setting moved without me catching it. Rats! Had a lot of fun on this one watching a member deep in snow taking photos! Great company!

    Those sparkles on the snow were nicer than any diamonds. Hard to beat fresh snow under a blue sky.

    Looks like the bus I was banking on isn't here. Might be 5-10 minutes late.

    Valerie, the map is correct, it shows the parking lot where we will meet.

    You can get to 130 Ave easily from 37 Street. Look for a sign pointing to "Fish Creek".
    On 130 Ave, turn south (downhill) to Woodpath Rd. It's a long driveway, and it leads into the park.

    There are actually two parking lots on Woodpath Rd. We'll meet on the first one. If you miss it, just go back uphill till you see it.

    Don't go into the "Environment" area, you'll just have to come out again.

    Hello, can you please give directions to the Park, I get confused with all the different entrances. I will be travelling south on Deerfoot Trail. Can you give me specific directions. Thanks so much! I will be bringing 2 dogs as well if people are ok with that.
