Miquelon Lake has some great backcountry trails that wind up and down hills around wetlands and through aspen and white spruce forest. We will hike approximately 10-12 km with a stop for lunch either down by the lake or at the lookout. We'll be back in the city before 3 pm.
This is a moderate hike with relatively flat trails with a few hills. You must be able to handle a pace of ~5 km/hour.
Rain or shine, we will meet at the southeast corner of the Meadows Transit Centre parking lot at 9:00 am and will be leaving at 9:05 am sharp.

To minimize our environmental footprint, we will be carpooling. There is a recommended carpool fee of $6 to be paid to the driver.
It is preferred that we carpool, but if you want to meet us there be at the overflow parking lot at the backcountry trails starting point for 10:00 am (see maps and directions in the link below). We'll start the hike at 10:15 am.
Miquelon Lake is around 63 km southeast of Edmonton off of Highway 21 and takes about an hour.
