Coal Lake A43 to A45, via Point Cooperation (1-way)

June 9, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT

This is a somewhat “long-lost” section that hasn’t been hiked in several years and we had it preped for 2 hike for back-to-back weekends last October but due to the early snow we had to make a change. So rather than 2 hikes from opposite ends with lunch at Point Cooperation we’ll do a straight through hike.

The Point is named for Project Cooperation, in which six 15- and 16-year olds, funded by the Province and by the Waskahegan Trail Association, cleared this section as part of their summer work in 1975.

The hike will leave from “A43” (Township Road 480 / Range Road 240) at about 9:45 a.m.. We’ll then follow the route along Coal Lake to Kjorlein Corner (A45), stopping for lunch at Point Cooperation, passing Mumey Ravine along the way (a reroute due to a landslide near Mumey Ravine is why it has been a few years for this hike). On hike day our ‘project cooperation’ will coordinate the car pools to get everyone home. BTW – the July 21st hike will pickup the trail at Kjorlein Corner (A45) & continue south along the lake.

The pictures from Pictures from June 19th, 2011 (but hopefully without the rain).

In Edmonton we will meet at the Century Park Park & Ride (‘Free Parking’ Section I, near the 109th Street Entrance/Exit) and carpool leaving at 9:00a.m..
