Next Meetup

Walk the Westend Wildlands
Meet inside the Hawrelak Park Pavilion (skating shack) next to the pond/lake at 6:30 PM to leave by 6:40 PM. PLEASE NOTE : Google map is NOT accurate. Just park at the main parking lot next to the ice sculptures. If folks sign up (even 1), I will attend as an organizer. If no one is signed up by noon, I will cancel. This event is intended to get away from city traffic and explore areas along the River. Distances will generally be between 7-10 km, with some up and down as we may wander off the main trail. Please bring proper footwear, including ice cleats as needed, as well as warm clothing, and a couple of dollars for coffee if you wish. Please note that the organizer knows the area well, but is not a professional guide and accepts no responsibility for injury or other negative event that might occur during the hike.

Band together with other hiking enthusiasts who also enjoy a regular walk for exercise! Inexpensive with excellent health benefits, walking is a great way to stay fit and meet new people. Our focus will be on light recreational walking in and around the Edmonton area. As well, if you come across an interesting article on walking or health that is pertinent to the group, feel free to share the information. This meetup group is associated with the WASKAHEGAN TRAIL ASSOCIATION. Since 1969, WTA has built and continues to walk its 235KM trail in and around Edmonton.
