DESCRIPTION

We'll start from the main parking lot at the Strathcona Wilderness Center and hike over to the far east side of the trails. Then we will cut across to Range Road 211 and walk south to the Beaver Hills Biodiversity Trail. Once we've completed the 2 km loop at the Biodiversity Trail, we'll head back to the Strathcona Wilderness Trails.

We will hike ~13 km with a stop for lunch at the cookhouse and be back in the city before 3 pm.
