Elk Island *** Canceled ***
December 31, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 3:00 pm MST
Due to the severe weather conditions this weekend and the exposed trails at Elk Island we have canceled the hike for Sunday, December 31st.
Why not close out the year with a hike at Elk Island – National Part (and last day for Free admission to the park). The hike will leave from the parking lot at the Tawayik Lake parking lot and follow the “Shirley Lake Trail” but which direction and how far will be based upon weather conditions that morning. The pictures from January 15th, 2017, when we did the full trail.
In Edmonton we will meet at the Belvedere ‘Park and Ride’ (free lot) & carpool (leaving at 10 a.m.). Participants may proceed there directly on their own, but should check the website prior to departure in case of a change (e.g., weather forecast, trail conditions).
The trailhead is the parking lot at the Tawayik Lake parking lot (on Tawayik Lake Access Road). We’ll begin the hike around 10:45 a.m.
