Hike Pembina Valley!

I have never been to the Pembina Valley Provincial Park, but all the photos I have seen show it to be very pretty! So, who wants to go check it out?  Doing some research, it looks like a combination of the Porcupine Ridges and Pembina Rim trails are the way to go...expect about a 6k hike, give or take, with approximately 20 minutes per kilometer (so about 2 hours, not accounting for stopping and taking photos).  According to the Government of Manitoba site, this trail is rated MODERATELY DIFFICULT with a small portion that is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT!  If you are RSVPing, PLEASE ensure that your physical ability will allow you to hike this trail!

With that housekeeping out of the way, let's get down to the details!

8:00am - Meet at the Tim Hortons (the one by the Canadian Tire, NOT at the racetrack) to collect meetup fees and organize carpooling
8:30am SHARP - Leave Timmy's for the park...it's approximately a 2 hour and 15 minute drive
10:45am - Arrive at park...organize our lives, check our batteries and water bottles, then hit the trail!
3:00pm (at the latest) - finish hike and head back to Winnipeg
5:15pm - Arrive at Timmy's, collect cars, then head home with many photos and memories filling our cameras and heads!

 

What you need to bring:
-$2 meetup fee
-money for person you are carpooling with
-water!  It's hiking in Manitoba in July!
-APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR!  The hike takes us up and down hills.  I don't want rolled or broken ankles!
-mosquito repellent!  Because again, it's hiking in Manitoba in July!
-trail snacks
-camera, of course!

    Hello folks! It appears as a portion of the trail we were PLANNING to take has been closed...see details here http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/parks/pdf/maps/2012_trail_maps/pembina_valley_trails.pdf

    With that being said, there are still a lot of trails that we can follow that aren't closed...and it would seem as though the level of difficulty is lower, as in much easier to walk. So, with that being said, it's now open for more folks to come join us!

    Well I was just wondering in regard to car pooling, if some already had season pass to provincial parks or where could day pass be got and how much ect.

    July 11, 2013

    • Holly T.

      There are only three people on the list so far, so I can't speak for carpooling yet, or who has a pass. Day passes can be bought at the park gate that day.

    Hi. I am interested on goin to this bit will have to investigate more in regard to difficulty. Isn't there an entrance fee for provincal parks? How will that work?

    Holly the Prairie Pathfinders are doing the Pembina Valley walk on June 2nd. You certainly could attend with them to check it out. I will be going if my schedule works out.
