Mactaggart Sanctuary (Revised Meeting Point)

January 8 @ 10:15 am 1:30 pm MST

Johanne & Dennis leading us on a winters hike through some of their favourite sections of the Mactaggart Sanctuary. We we had to cancel this hike twice last winter but Johanne & Dennis eventually did lead us on a great spring hike, picture from  April 3rd, 2022.

We’ll meet at about 10:15 a.m. near 7121 May Crescent (Google Map & picture), with lots of street parking (Note: the ‘Mactaggart Sanctuary Trail Parking Lot’ on 23rd Ave is currently closed due to construction in the area).

The hike will leave at 10:30, starting with a a short walk to an entry point to the paved trail. We are planning on an ~7¼km hike with a stop at Waves Coffee (~2⅔km) for a washroom & coffee break along the way. We will then retrace our steps a bit, on a snow-covered dirt single track trails to the “Murals” under the Anthony Henday bridge, crossing the creek on the ice, continuing eastwards & crossing the creek again, then back to the paved path.

There will are some hills and with forecast for later in the weeks calls for some warmer weather with some thaw/freeze, so remember to bring spikes & poles. If conditions are poor, we may revise the route.
