Middle Battle River (A62 to A61)
September 1, 2019 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm MDT
This week’s hike, some 10 km round trip, is along forest paths and across open fields with views of the glorious Battle River Valley. This huge valley was created in a matter of days towards the end of the last ice age, when an ice-bound lake covering the entire Edmonton area suddenly broke free. Bring lunch, water, medium-weight boots or good walking shoes, sun block and insect repellent, and you’ll be prepared for a wonderful day in nature.
Starting from the Duhamel Campground (‘Ross flats campground’ at Range Road 212C just off Highway 21) at about 10 a.m. and going to Trautman Crossing/Fidler’s Monument. The pictures from October 21st, 2018.
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 a.m. Participants may proceed there directly on their own, but should check the website prior to departure in case of a change.
