Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area - Beginner Hike

It is a requirement to read the following trip posting very carefully and to make the proper and responsible preparations for it. Failure to do so, will result in participant not allowed on this event. As a potential participant, you must check this trip posting for additional directions from the organizer, including up to trip cancellation. 
Event Description:

The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA) consists of 4,800 acres of rolling foothills land.  It was donated by Ann and Sandy Cross for the protection of wildlife habitat and conservation education. Located just southwest of the City of Calgary off Highway 22X.  See link below for driving instructions - Contacts and Directions tab at top of page.

We will combine a few of the trails for a total hike of about 10 Km. The trails are through rolling hills and while the total elevation is minimal, there are a few ups and downs. We will maintain a steady pace and expect we will be out there for 2-3 hours.

Suggested Gear:  Layered clothes, sturdy walking/hiking boots, water, poles and snacks or lunch if wanted.

Event Pace and Size:  12 people, 18 years of age and older.  This group will hike at a relaxed pace.

Misc Information:  Dogs are not allowed.

Donations are requested by ASCCA to help maintain the trails etc. Previously they had requested a minimum $2.00 donation. 

WAIVER:  

As per the new policy for waivers, I will bring the group waiver form with me to the trailhead. You must number of an emergency contact. Please come prepared with this information.

Your participation in this event means you have read the waiver and by signing up for this event you have accepted the waiver. If you have stated "no" in your profile you will not be accepted to participate. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.

All participants are responsible for assessing the current road conditions, current weather conditions, your current physical condition, current trail conditions and current avalanche conditions for the trip and you are responsible for your safety and well-being.
