EXPLORATORY HIKE in the WARE CREEK AREA

I would like to get 3-4 people to come with me to check out some possible hikes in the Ware Creek area west of Millerville.There are two trails I want to try to find and hike,both are short. The first one is called Death,s Head which is 3.3 km. return and 219M elevation. The second which is near the first one is called Aspen Veiwpoint which is only 1.7 km. return and 76M elevation. If I can find these 2 trails I would like to check them out and hike them both.They are well discribed in Gillean Daffern,s guide book so we should be able to locate them.If you would like to come alongjust bring your hiking boots and lunch/snack and water.The gas is on me,but I might tap you for a coffee or tea after at a local establishment.If you would like to come along just sign up.You can either meet me at A+W or I could pick you up if you live in S.E. or S.W. end of Calgary.If you have any concerns or questions email me thru the site or text/call me at[masked]-3790.

    Lovely day wandering around exploring the foothills in the Ware Creek area. We were treated to the sound of a woodpecker and to the sight of numerous wildflowers such as Paintbrush and Shooting Star. This will be a pretty area to hike during the fall when the colors change. Thanks for putting this on Wayne!

    Now that the "explore"part is over l will definitely do this 2 hikes together as a beginner meetup. But l will do the Death,s Head trail first then Aspen Veiwpoint do the steeper one first.Combined km. of both trails would be 10km.Was a great day with good "exploratory hikers",nice coffee/tea place in Priddis too.
