Landowner Rights & Trail User Responsibilities

The Waskahegan Trail is a unique resource that exists only because of the generosity of landowners. Before you set foot on the trail:

  1. Know the landowner rights and the trail user responsibilities.
  2. Check the trail conditions

Mill Creek Hike

Six hikers set out on a cold morning for a hike around Mill Creek Ravine.

Our hike was a big loop of 8.5 kilometers on both the east and west sides of the ravine crossing numerous foot bridges. We meandered off on some bike trails through the trees. It was a beautiful pristine day with the poplars laden with snow.

From the 88 Avenue staircase, we headed south on a single track to the old railway trestle at 76 Avenue.

From there we continued north to Muttart Conservatory and had lunch in the courtyard. Several of us enjoyed hot drinks from the Culina Cafe.

The natural beauty was the highlight. However, we also enjoyed seeing the new murals under the Whyte Avenue Bridge and the skiers on Connors Hill.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the hike. You can see more photos on Flicker.

Miquelon Park Winter Hike

Ten people came out to hike the trails on Miquelon Provincial Park. The day was as sunny as it was frigid.

The animals are safe and thriving in their specialized winter homes—whether under the ice, in the lodges, in tree cavities, or under the snow.

This abandoned house is in the woods inside the park. We always pay our respects when we visit.

It’s quite obvious that the shortest day of the year is just around the corner. Thanks to Irene for scouting and leading the hike. You can find more photos on Flickr.
