Next Meetup

Walk the Westend Wildlands
With warmer weather, we will meet again at Fort Edmonton Park Parking lot (west end near the buildings). Please meet at 6:30 PM for a 6:40 start. PLEASE NOTE : Google map is NOT accurate. If folks sign up (even 1), I will attend as an organizer. If no one is signed up by noon, I will cancel. This is a casual walk with frequent stops for natural and cultural items of interest. Main purpose is 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 and clothing, bug and sun lotion, walking sticks, and perhaps gators. Ticks are around and we often walk in grass. 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.

What we're about

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. If you are interested in this group, please visit the website at http://www.waskahegantrail.ca. If you are interested in backpacking or more technical walking/hiking activities check out our message board which lists other outdoor groups. Please join us on our next walk!
