Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area

July 26, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm MDT

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and will gradually restart our hikes, with some obvious protocol changes listed at the bottom.

While not part of the Waskahegan Trail, the Chickakoo Lake is within the general Waskahegan Trail area. The hike will leave from the main parking lot at the Chickakoo Lake Parking Lot at about 9:45 a.m.. The pictures from September 16th, 2012.

If you are new to WTA hikes, then you should visit the Guided Hikes webpage for essential information. For further information specific to this hike, refer to The Waskahegan Trail Guide Book (page 123), or contact the Hike Leader, Helen W., at 780-468-4331.

Initial protocol changes due to COVID-19:

  • using public trails, in/near the city (not the WTA Trail as virtually all of the trail is on private land and we do not want to impact the landowners);
  • meeting at the trailhead, no car pooling (so the start time reflects driving to the trailhead from the city rather than a 9am meeting point at Century Park or Belvedere Park & Ride);
  • the hike leader will fill out all forms (e.g., signup sheet) & please use the online waver (to minimize what we all touch);
  • Government of Alberta – Guidance on outdoor activities;
  • recommending wearing a face mask (Government of Alberta – Guidance for wearing non-medical face masks);
  • only attend if you are feeling well & comfortable being with the group.

Meet at Trailhead – We do not provide organized car pooling. However, participants are encouraged to make their own car pooling arrangements.

The current Government of Alberta COVID-19 public health action plan indicates that all COVID-19 public health measures have been lifted. However, WTA group event attendees are encouraged to assess and manage their personal risk.
