FORAN GRADE SNOWSHOE HIKE

This hike is in the Sheep River valley west of Turner Valley.I have done this trail several times in winter and summer.The winter trail head starts off at the winter gate 22km. west of Turner Valley on hi-way 546.We will have to walk a extra 1.6km one way on the road to the trail head due to the winter road closure.This would bring the total distance to about 9.6 km.The elevation would be 225M.

What to Bring;

Your backpack with lunch,snacks,water.Your snowshoes along with proper winter wear such as headgear,mitts/gloves.If you use poles bring them also.We will meet on the east lot of the LRT across from the Wendys/Tim Hortons.We will form a carpool from there to the trailhead. If you are driving straight to the trailhead please let me know in the commet section.If you have any questions about the hike or any gear concerns you can email me thru the site or text/phone me at[masked]-3790.

    Other than the long walk in and back out on the road, it was terrific. Beautiful sunny day with spectacular views. Great exercise breaking trail!

    I d like to meet you in Turner Valley at the Chuckwagon cafe right opposite the HiHo Gas Station, rather than meet way down south in Calgary. What time? If you Google Chuckwagon Turner VAlley, they have A-1 breakfast etc ratings too!
