Hiking Gwynne and the Chickadee Trail

On May 13, Waskahegan veteran Oscar Z. led hikers along two of his favourite sections of the Trail. A steady drizzle did not deter 16 hikers, and they were rewarded when the drizzle stopped just as the hike began.

The Gwynne hike runs along the tableland for much of its length, offering fine views of Pipestone Creek below, the Battle River Valley to the east, and frequent glimpses of Coal Lake to the north.

Horses as curious as we were.

Who says central Alberta is flat?

Four of the hikers also chose to hike the Chickadee Trail. Down in the valley alongside a tributary of Pipestone Creek, it offers intimate views of the creek and the rail line on the shore opposite.

It was a great pleasure to have two new WTA members and six other guests join in on this wonderful day.
