Devon Voyager Park / Lion’s Campground
June 14 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm MDT
This week’s outing makes good use of the Devon trails along the south side of the North Saskatchewan River. The trails climb up and down, in and out of the river valley, making for a more challenging hike than we might be used to on other city trails. The hike will be about 10.5 km long, leaving from the parking lot at Voyager Park (boat launch lot at the bottom of the hill on Saskatchewan Avenue) at about 9:45 a.m.
Note – there are now 3 parking lots at the bottom of the hill & the washrooms between the 2nd & 3rd parking lots are open:
- the first one (with the fire watch sign) is for the bike park (don’t park here)
- the middle one (with the big blue ‘Parking’ sign) is for regular vehicles (so where we should park)
- the last one (also with the big blue ‘Parking’ sign) is for vehicles hauling a boat trailer (don’t park here)

Hikers are grateful for these wood railings, especially in winter…
