Kopp Lake (A35 to A34)

June 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 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.

This will be a great time to come & check out the recent reroute at Kopp Lake !! We will meet at the trail head at “A35” (at the fork in the road for Township Road 492 & 492A), we should hitting the trail at 9:45 a.m.., but should check the website prior to departure in case of a change (e.g., weather forecast, trail conditions). Pictures from September 20th, 2020.

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, pages 26-27, or contact the Hike Leader, John S..

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 – “Stage 1 reopening, starts June 1” – Outdoor social gatherings are allowed up to 10 people and Outdoor physical, performance and recreation activities up to 10 distanced people;
  • 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.
