The WTA has made a few protocol changes for our events. Details at the bottom of page.
Battery Creek Trails (+ Devon Golf Course River Loop)
November 21 @ 10:15 am – 3:00 pm MST
This is a new part of the River Valley Alliance trail system that will eventually connect Devon to Fort Saskatchewan – Devon’s new article.
We’ll meet at the parking lot at the Battery Creek Trailhead (on Range Road 262 just off Highway 19) at about 10:15 a.m.. The hike will leave from the parking lot at 10:30.
The River Valley Alliance web site provides a good overview of the trail Battery Creek Trail, along with the driving instructions from both the Edmonton & Leduc area.
The hike will be ~9km. We’ll start by going from the trailhead to the current trail end & back (~1½km each way, a bit longer if the stairs down to the platform at the bottom of the ravine are OK). Then it will be the section of the trail that connects to the Lion’s Campground in Devon where we’ll have lunch at the gazebo (~1¼km). After lunch we’ll follow the river side of the trail looping around the Devon Golf Course and back through the Lion’s Campground before returning to the parking lot at the trailhead.

With the current Government of Alberta action plans to beat COVID-19, Albertans are encouraged to assess and manage their personal risk. It is reasonable for people to continue using precautions that will serve their needs.
Waskahegan Trail Association protocol changes for our events:
- We meet at the event location (e.g., trailhead for hikes). There is no organized car pooling, however, participants can make their own car pooling arrangements
- Don’t attend if you are awaiting the results of COVID-19 testing or if you have any signs or symptoms of covid or anything unusual
- Only attend if you are feeling well and are comfortable being with the group.
- Individual event coordinators (e.g., hike leaders) and event locations (e.g., buildings within the parks) may have additional requirements that MUST be followed at all times.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and may has to make further adjustments.
