The Volkssport Association of Alberta is hosting the 5th River Ravine Walk on July 5 with registration at 6:30 for a walk start at 7:00 pm, in Fort Edmonton Park.
The address for Ft Edmonton is [masked] St. But after passing under the Quesnell Bridge turn left into the parking lot and proceed to the end. We usually try to meet at the picnic table under the trees, or as near there as possible.
The 6 km walk follows the natural trail around the outside of Ft. Edmonton Park, along the North Saskatchewan River, then crosses the Ft Edmonton Pedestrian Bridge and continues for a short distance on the West side of the river, before returning, across the bridge and back on a paved MUT into the park and back to the start point.
The 10 km walk starts the same but continues to a second footbridge, the Terwilleger Pedestrian Bridge, then follows a gravel trail uphill to Whitemud Rd for a lovely view of the river valley. The walk continues through a residential area, before winding downhill to the paved MUT into Ft Edmonton Park and back to the start.
Being an evening walk, bring your mosquito spray just in case. Hope to see you there!
