Battle River (A60) to Schnee Hill

October 6, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT

This hike of 10.4 km is along the stunning Battle River. This huge river valley was created at the end of the last ice age when the melt water that created Lake Edmonton broke through the ice and drained the huge lake in just a few days. The pictures from October 15th, 2017.

We’ll be starting from the “A60” at about 10 a.m. From Highway 13 take the ‘South Bittern Lake Road’ for 5½km – “A60” is ~300m after crossing bridge just before turn going back uphill. Please park before the row of trees, ~200m from the bridge (without blocking the farm road) to allow vehicles to make it through the turn safely.

Hikers on a bridge built by Waskahegan Trail volunteers. Seems sturdy enough….

You could enjoy glorious views by owning that house, or enjoy them for free along the Waskahegan Trail!…27354257544_5a7dabeff9_o

The Battle River in its huge valley…

Beautiful fields to wander through…

A pleasant and inspiring hike with good company…. 🙂
